On this 2.5 hour semi-private (8 Guest Maximum) guided museum tour visit one of the world’s largest collections of artifacts at the British Museum. Your engaging tour guide will take you through a curated selection of cultural and artistic works, sharing the history that will help you understand and appreciate a small portion of the 8 million items at the British Museum.

Visit: The British Museum, Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3DG England

Trade in paintings for mummies and historical artifacts on a tour of the British Museum. The enormous collection spans 6000 years of human history, featuring items from all over the world like Samurai armor and rare Assyrian lion hunt reliefs. Your guide will take a serious but enjoyable approach towards the museum’s galleries, discussing primitive tribes and fallen empires through a carefully chosen selection of items.

You’ll learn about the Mummy of Katebet, the Lewis Chessmen, and the Rosetta Stone – the actual rock, not the language learning program. Walk away with an understanding of what we humans have achieved during our short history and hopefully you’ll be proud to call yourself a part of this incredible species.

We had a great time seeing the artifacts and learning about all of the fascinating history behind it. Our guide Matilda was amazing, keeping the entire family engaged while still being enthusiastic and informative. We did the tour with teenagers, and they enjoyed it very much.

Becky was a superb guide, one of the best guides we’ve ever had for any tour. Her knowledge of the history of many divergent pieces in the British Museum is excellent and she leads you to the exhibits you need to see and then tells you why you should see them. She is friendly, humorous and has an infectious passion for the subject matter. I highly recommend taking a British Museum tour with Becky

Becky was great, communication before and during the tour was perfect. She grabbed a position in line early so that we did not have to wait for a big influx of seasonal tourists. Once inside, she regaled us with her knowledge and our very small group learned more about the exhibits than we ever would have on our own. You can either be part of the masses or be part of the informed....
