Full description
Your tour begins with a brief introduction from your expert guide, who not only holds the key to one of the magnificent rooms inside, but also the key to unlocking the secrets and stories behind some of the museum’s most beautiful curiosities. Beginning by unlocking the door to Ancient Egypt, you will come face to face with the Rosetta Stone and stirring Ramesses II, and spend some uninterrupted time taking in the fascinating stories that surround them.

As the public begins to trickle into the building, your tour is on to a still-quiet Ancient Greece and to the Parthenon Marbles and stirring Lely’s Venus. From there you’ll be immersed in the Life, Death, and Afterlife of Ancient Egypt, where a mummy of a cat and the Gebelein Man (aka ‘Ginger’) are awaiting your discovery.

Meet the spellbinding Bronze Statue of Tara in China and South East Asia, and learn all about the ornate ceramic tiles of the Ming Dynasty before finally finishing up with the beautifully preserved Hoa Hakananai’a of the iconic Easter Island moai. This special tour of the British Museum is truly a once-in-a-lifetime way to experience one of the world’s most impressive collections of human history, art and culture.
