The British Museum’s director has bold plans to redisplay galleries and move stored collections out of London

The director of the British Museum, Hartwig Fischer, has revealed plans for what could be the most radical redisplay of the permanent collection since the mid-19th century. Artefacts from ancient Greece and Rome, currently spread over two floors, will be reunited and many more objects from Oceania and South America will be on show. Altogether this could involve the redisplay of half of the museum’s nearly 100 rooms. ...

... Take Egypt. Sculptures are on the ground floor but mummies and smaller objects, which say a lot about faith, society and daily life, are on the upper floor. You can say the same about Mesopotamian, Greek and Roman galleries; there you also have things on two levels.

Does this mean you will be rearranging the permanent collection?

Yes. Egypt will be on the ground floor. Plans are still at an early stage but we are contemplating concentrating the more ancient cultures on the ground floor. ...

Greetings, Lutz.
