The British Museum represented a radical departure from traditional museums upon its establishment in 1753. Prior to the museum's opening, most museums were owned by either the king or the church. The British Museum was the world's very first public museum and opened its doors to anyone who wished to browse the collection of physician Sir Hans Sloane.
