The British Museum is the UK’s most-visited museum. Accompanied by a history and art-enthusiast guide, you’ll admire the Museum’s masterpieces and learn how humans have shaped our world.
British Museum Tour
With one of the most important collections in the world, this is the third most-visited museum, after the Louvre in Paris and the Metropolitan Museum in New York City. Its vast collection includes world art and artefacts from Ancient Greece, Ancient Egypt, Mexico’s ancient civilizations and Easter Island.
During the British Museum tour, you’ll have an exclusive guide, and together with a small group of no more than 20 you'll uncover the secrets of what is perhaps the world's greatest museum. Admire its highlights including the Greek, Roman and Egyptian areas, with the controversial Elgin Marbles, Anglo-Saxon relics and more, as well as the Great Court's stunning glass ceiling.
One of the British Museum’s gems is the extraordinary Rosetta Stone, the key to decipher Egyptian hieroglyphs. On your tour, you’ll find out how it was discovered and its history.
When the 2-hour guided visit comes to an end, you’ll have marvelled at the British Museum’s best-loved objects and appreciate how we humans have evolved.
