  Welcome to The British Museum Online Shop
  In preparation for the busy Christmas season we have launched an exciting new shopping experience. Like the Museum itself, our online shops contain a rich variety of books and gifts. Some have an educational or practical use; others are simply beautiful objects to give a distinctive touch to any home. Taking the exhibits as their inspiration, each tells a fascinating story and offers a permanent reminder of the wonders to be found in the Museum.

Whether you are planning on indulging yourself or are looking for a unique Christmas gift, you can now browse our ranges by entering our Egyptian Shop, Exhibition Shop or Children’s Shop and those who wish to peruse our complete range of books and gifts can do so by entering either the Gift or Book Shop. We hope you enjoy your visit, your order is greatly appreciated and the proceeds directly support the work of the Museum.

We welcome all comments about our redesigned site from customers. Please send your comments by email to: Thank you.
