Tour description

As the world’s first national public museum, the British Museum offers visitors a chance to travel to Ancient Greece, Egypt and Rome, journey to the heart of Mesopotamia and experience an unbelievable collection of objects that tell the tale of a world long gone. 

With your private guide to bring it all to life, unlock the stories behind these astounding relics of the human experience, all under one roof.

Upon meeting your guide, your 2.5 hour private tour will take you on a journey through artefacts of the Egyptian Afterlife, the hieroglyphic code-cracking Rosetta Stone, coins and pottery of the Ancient Romans from their settlement of Britain to the frontiers of their empire, the Museum’s founding collection and so much more. Tailored to your particular interests, wherever they may lie, we even provide a family-friendly version if you have children in the group.
