In our Museum galleries
To-day I lingered o'er the prize
Dead Greece vouchsafes to living eyes, –
Her Art for ever in fresh wise
From hour to hour rejoicing me.

D. G. ROSSETTI.

The British Museum open to the Public, free of charge, on every day in the year (except Good Friday and Christmas Day).

The hours of opening are, on week-days, from 10 A.M. to 6 P.M. (After 4 P.M. in January, February, November, and December, and after 5 P.M. in March, September, and October, the Greek and Roman Galleries are open only on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.)

On Sundays the Exhibition Galleries are open from 2 P.M. to 4, 5, or 6 P.M., according to the season.

The British Museum is, on the whole, the best-ordered and pleasantest institution in all England, and the grandes concentration of the means of human knowledge in the world. --RUSKIN.
