  • The Queen Elizabeth II Great Court is the central courtyard of the British Museum. It was remodeled in the late 1990s and it was inaugurated by Queen Isabel II in the year 2000. The space has a glass roof that covers the entire court and surrounds the original circular the British Museum in Central reading room, now Museum. The roof is corrugated, glass and steel and made with unique diamond-shaped pieces. There are shops and a cafeteria within the Great Court. The large space acts as a connection point for the Museum, similar to the pyramid of the Louvre in Paris. The central courtyard of the British Museum was occupied by the British Library until 1997 when he moved to St Pancras, once used to build the Great Court in the central courtyard. The reading room of the British Library was restored is today used as the library of the Museum and information center. It is really striking contrast between ancient of the Museum building and the modern of the Great Court.
