Know More about this tour

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.

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.

  • 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.

  • Our tour guide was great. She was very knowledgeable and she really gave us an insight on the best highlight of the British museum. Very well worth it!

  • Our guide Kathy was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the contents of the museum. She asked the tour members what types of things we were interested in seeing, and made sure we got to all of them. She shared her personal insight on the historical value of many items in the museum, and guided us to view several items that were very interesting even though not well known. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough!

  • We took this tour because the museum is so big and we were limited with time so we wanted to get the most out of our afternoon and we did. Cathy was our guide and she did a great job. She was very knowledgeable and we got the see and understand what we were seeing and it was worth it. We would do this tour again and ask for her. She did a great job.
