We’ve created a new one-way route around the Ground floor galleries that lets you enjoy two million years of human history 🏛
One of the highlights along the new route is this colossal bust is of the Egyptian pharaoh Ramesses II, who reigned from 1279–1213 BC. Weighing an incredible 7.5 tonnes, the bust is one of the largest and heaviest objects in the collection and can be seen in Room 4.
