For British Museum, you can take a tube to Tottenham court road. When you stand at the entrance, it is difficult to guess how big it is from inside. It has a big food court, souvenir shop and plenty of places to sit and relax when tired.
British Museum Guide
My suggestion is to start with the section on the left (Risotto Stone) etc. If you are short of time, try and visit the Egyptian section first (Mummies etc.). A Mummy of a Cat is quite interesting.
There is a decent Asian art section as well which I liked – many items from India are on display as well. I find it very relaxing just to sit in the main lobby soaking up the atmosphere and appreciate the history of mankind and ancient civilizations.
British Museum London-Itinerary
I also immensely appreciate that they have kept the museum for free (like several others in London). Whenever I’m in central London and have a couple of spare hours, I don’t have to think twice before heading off to one of my favorite places – Either The British Museum, or Natural History Museum or the Science Museum (all have a Free entry).
If I win the lotto, I promise, I’ll pay all museums for all my free visits. The joy I have got from visiting these, again and again, is priceless. You are doing fantastic service, keep it up.
My suggestion is to spend at least 5 days in London to decently explore this wonderful city. See London Itineraries
