2 free exhibitions at The British Museum from September 2016

Two of my favourite free exhibtion rooms at The British Museum are Room 90 and 91. The Department of Prints and Drawings shows works from their collection through a programme of temporary exhibitions which are usually shown in Room 90. Room 91 also shows temporary exhibits which are 2D in nature.

Just opened recently are the two below exhibitions which are free, they are definitely on my to do list.
