about the museum
Founded in 1753, the British Museum’s remarkable collection spans over two million years of human history and culture, all under one roof. Six million visitors every year experience the collections from Africa, Asia, Europe, the Americas and the ancient world, including world famous objects such as the Rosetta Stone, the Parthenon sculptures, and Egyptian mummies. The British Museum Art Prints programme is the result of a special collaboration between the museum and Art.com, ensuring the most accurate and high quality reproduction of art works in the museum's collections and exhibitions. Framed examples of the Art Prints are on display at the British Museum Shops and can either be purchased during your visit or through this online store. All purchases of prints in this program support the work of the British Museum.
