Be taken on a voyage through the British Museum’s collections to explore the last two million years of human history. Each object featured in A History of the World in 100 Objects marks a point on your journey through history -- from early stone tools to Dürer’s celebrated print, The Rhinoceros -- the famous Flood Tablet to colourful Javanese shadow puppets.

Unlock fascinating stories and discover interactions between cultures of the past. Wonder at the remarkable achievements of humans as they faced changing climates, new lands and changing political arenas and be amazed by their ingenuity and awed by their craftsmanship.

Exclusive to the Australian tour is the bronze Head of Augustus from Meroë. One of the most important surviving portraits of Rome’s first emperor, it was originally part of a statue that was ritually beheaded in antiquity. This object caused an international sensation when excavated in Sudan in 1910.

Don’t miss our final exhibition A History of the World in 100 Objects. On display until 18 June 2016.

Significant changes to the Museum have begun and the collections are being moved in preparation for development of the New Museum. All of our long term galleries have now closed. Visitors to the Museum can experience the A History of the World in 100 Objects exhibition. The Perth site will temporarily close from June 2016 to re-open in 2020.
