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 like Samurai armor and rare Assyrian lion hunt reliefs. Your guide 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.

  • we very much enjoyed our small-group tour we were the only two in the group, our guide Becky asked us our main interest, as this is a huge museum, and adapted the tour likewise also showing us the other most interesting or controversial pieces of the museum.
    the tour also took us to a few lesser known civilizations and sparked our interest in those .
    Manny thanks to Becky for making our history tour a succes

  • Angus was our guide, he was excellent. I was in awe of this fabulous museum.

  • Our host was very knowledable.........good tour but a little over priced

  • Fantastic Museum. Our guide was insightful and energetic and interacted great with out 3 children. Highly recommended!

  • Probably our best tour of the bunch. Only 4 of us, including Angus, our guide, who was very knowledgeable, courteous, funny, and witty. Good highlights tour of a huge facility. Pace was about right.

  • The tour was wonderful. It was a great way to learn and experience the museum in a way that was not overwhelming. The guide was friendly, fun and a very good teacher.

  • Our tour with Becky was amazing! She knew so much about everything we saw and made the experience much more rich than it would have been if we had just wandered through on our own. Totally recommend this tour!

  • We signed up for a semi-private tour of the British Museum while were in London. Our guide, Becky, was truly amazing! We were late finding her our fault, not hers, but she was warm and welcoming and glad to see us. She was very familiar with the museum and very knowledgeable about the history of all the exhibits. We asked her so many questions, and she answered them all with so many interesting details. She was considerate about asking if we needed to sit down or use the facilities. She was so professional. The only problem we had was the crowds, but that's typical when touring in the summer. We will definitely make use of Viator again!

  • This was a wonderful tour. We cannot cay enough about our tour guide, Becky, she was knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. Her efforts made our tour of the museum a wonderful experience. She was GREAT!

  • Our guide was wonderful! A young Australia man that has duel citizenship! We enjoy the 2 hour overview and highlight he provided on the tour. This is such a large museum, a person can spend a few days viewing all the artifacts and still not see every display! Even thought it's a free museum, it's worth having a guide for the first time attendees.
