The British Museum, where I work, is hardly unknown, but there are so many unusual objects, and it is truly exceptional. And with over 8 million works relating to history, art, and culture, there are plenty of surprises. Visit the Clocks and Watches gallery on the hour, and you’ll hear an unusual array of bongs, tings, and tunes. The silver-gilt huntsman automaton in the Waddesdon Bequest gallery is one of the most unusual items. This 17th century drinking game was propelled around a table by a clockwork mechanism with a removable head to drink from. Look out for secret doors in the beautiful and fascinating Enlightenment gallery.
I am a consultant specialising in advice about looking after and exhibiting the precious objects that are displayed in museums. I previously worked at National Trust properties but now work as part of our international department on a British Museum project. I'm new to Airbnb but I'm easy going and am very tidy, if you're up for good conversation, giving me some local tips or grabbing a drink, then great, but if not then I'll always respect your privacy. If I get home late I'm always quiet and I'll make sure the door's locked!
