Stop At: 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 including Samurai armor and rare Assyrian lion hunt reliefs. Our guides 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.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and we felt like we learned quite a bit on our tour. It was so much better than roaming aimlessly and just reading the placards. Hearing the stories and controversies surrounding some of the exhibits was our favorite part.

The highlight was having a fantastic guide. Becky is informed, enthusiastic, and has terrific presentation skills. As far as the Museum is concerned, the breadth and depth of the holdings is breathtaking and should not be missed.
