Located in Bloomsbury, central London, the British Museum was founded in 1753 and is the national museum of antiquities.

 The Cold War was a period of political and military tension between the Soviet Union and the West, lasting from the end of World War II until 1991.  KGB, CIA and MI6 spies (the "foot soldiers of the Cold War") were said to meet discreetly at the British Museum.
