Description The British Museum's Enlightenment Room is a display dedicated to the age of Enlightenment. Separated into the various arts and sciences, there are books, fossils and statues on display, along with examples of earthenware and metalwork, which try to explain how pieces were viewed and collected at the time.

There are many shelves of old leather-bound books covering topics from the obscure (insect legs) to the popular (Shakespeare).

It also has two fire extinguishers. This fact alone makes it the most awesome room in the world.

Press f to view on black!
