Shakespeare’s Globe is a reconstruction of the Globe Theatre, an Elizabethan playhouse in the London Borough of Southwark, on the River Thames that was originally built in 1599 and destroyed by fire in 1613.  The modern reconstruction is an academic approximation based on available evidence of the 1599 and 1614 construction attempts.

The British Museum contains a showcase of global antiquities including Egyptian mummies and ancient Greek sculptures.  It was established in 1753 and contains the best collection of ancient antiquities I have ever seen in my life.  This held the best collection of items, but the building itself needs some work.
