See human history and culture brought to life on a 2.5-hour tour of the British Museum in London! With millions of artifacts spread over 70 galleries, the enthralling museum is vast and a visit to it without a guide can be overwhelming. So, follow a knowledgeable local guide around the exhibitions to discover its highlights while hearing historical facts and anecdotes. See mummies from Ancient Egypt, Anglo-Saxon treasures from England and the impressive Parthenon Frieze from the Acropolis of Athens, alongside other captivating relics.Numbers are limited to 25 people on this small-group tour, ensuring personalized attention from a guide.

Meet your guide in central London, and then head inside the prestigious British Museum for your 2.5-hour tour. A veritable treasure trove, the museum showcases the story of human culture and history, and is home to artifacts from around the world, not just Britain!

Some 70 galleries comprise the museum’s vast exhibition space, so follow your guide to discover its highlights while listening to entertaining anecdotes, trivia and history. Headphones are provided so you can hear clearly at all times. Athenian marble, Egyptian mummies and English treasures from burial sites at Sutton Hoo — said to date to Anglo-Saxon times — are just a handful of the artifacts seen.

Hear of the real Rosetta Stone, which played an important part in deciphering Egyptian hieroglyphics, and gaze in awe at the gigantic Parthenon Frieze. Measuring 525-foot (160-meters) long, the attention-grabbing sculpture once stole the limelight in the Acropolis of Athens. Today, the sculpture is said to be one of the most important surviving relics of classical Greece. Other highlights of your tour include the Egyptian Rooms with their impressive collection of mummies. Learn about the importance of death and the afterlife in Ancient Egyptian culture while viewing human history in person.

Your tour finishes inside the museum, but you can stay inside for longer, if you wish, to view the exhibits independently. A good selection of restaurants and cafes are on site, if you want to eat after your tour at your own expense.
