Thanks for the photos.

Is it true that there many many stolen treasures there?

Like a lot of museums with a "cultural" theme, there are certainly lots of exhibits that are contraversial where demands have been made for the return of such exhibits to their country of origin.

The Elgin Marbles, Benin Bronzes and the Rosetta Stone are among the most disputed objects in its collections, and demands have been made for the return of these artefacts to their native countries of Greece, Nigeria and Egypt respectively.

A quick shot of one of the Elgin Marbles:
