This museum are famous for its Egyptian artefact, mummies, Greek sculptures and ceramics. There are many controversy surrounding some of the objects here. Some people say it "stolen artefact" from other countries and may obtain it illegally. The Chinese ceramics on the display are also very impressive and even matching those displayed in the National Palace Museum in Taipei. The museum also houses the Elgin Marbles which is the classical Greek marble sculptures. The positive point of this museum is free admission and allowed photography.
