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.

Our guide did an admirable job of taking us to the most important exhibits in a very complex museum. There is a lot of walking and stairs but it was well worth it. Highly recommend this tour.

This tour is a great way to maximize your time in the British Museum. Our group was pretty small, just 6 people, so we were able to ask questions and engage with our tour guide. Our tour guide was Italian; she was very knowledgeable about each room in the museum. She highlighted the Rosetta stone, Handrian's Wall, the Egyptian mummies, artifacts from the Parthenon, and more! The museum is a must see while in London; this tour will help you maximize your time in the museum to see the highlights with explanation. There were people in the museum who were eavesdropping on our tour and tried to join in because it was very informative! My husband and I loved it.

This was a great tour. Our guide, Natalie, did a first rate job showing us the principal attractions, and filling in the stories behind the exhibits. Exhausting but fun.
