Overview

Discover some of the highlights of the British Museum with a guide and get a flavor of one of the world’s oldest and finest museums. Because there is so much to see, you could spend a week at the British Museum and still not discover it all. Experience the best of the British Museum’s collections, starting with a view of the breathtaking ceiling. Admire the spectacular glass roof of the Great Court, a work of art. Then, see the world-famous “Rosetta Stone,” the key to deciphering Egyptian hieroglyphics. Admire the controversial Parthenon Sculptures, taken from the Parthenon in Athens by Lord Elgin, the former British ambassador to the Ottoman Empire. Go to the Ancient Egypt galleries to see the large collection of Egyptian mummies, and discover the Anglo-Saxon “Sutton Hoo” burial relics, as well as the “Winged Bulls” from Khorsabad.

We booked this 2 hour (ish) tour the day before we went and didn’t know what to expect. Our guide, Natasha, was amazing. She welcomed our party and said she was waiting for other to arrive. As it was raining, she escorted us into the museum so we could wait in peace. She then returned to the rain to wait for the late arrivals. This kind act was just the beginning as she remained concerned with how each member of the tour was doing and even altered the tour a bit to address the specific interest of tour members. We weaved our way through different rooms as she compared how different cultures addressed the same issues differently. The British Museum is quite large, and having such an expert focus our attention during the visit was essential. I can recommend the tour, to be sure, but that is because often guide. She had such great knowledge, knew how to communicate it, and was attentive to the needs of the tour. Greta experience!

Yot told us at the beginning honestly that you had recently been registered as the professional guide to the British Museum and were feeling a bit nervous. But we got acquainted each other soon after we introduced ourselves. It impressed us that you said, all the collections featured the life and death of human being and that was the concept of the museum.
We enjoyed the over one-hour introductory guided tour as in fact a private tour (two of us were only the guests.). Thank you!

Something you should visit, but not a have to see. It is very big so plan accordingly. I did not like some of the exhibits. It felt they brought in different artifacts that were of a certain culture, but it did not tell a story.
