What you'll do

The British Museum is unique. When you go to the French Museum or American Museum you will see artefacts relating to those countries. The British Museum has a very small collection of British items. What you will find instead is the history of the Ancient Civilisations, the whole history of the world in one building.
There are 15 million items on display and no matter how hard you try you will miss some of the most precious and important items that formed the modern world as we know it. But... this is where I will help you. In 2 hours I can show you the critical pieces and explain their significance in the formation of society as you know it today.
Join me in the discovering of this amazing museum.
You will be able to travel all around the world in just 2 hours and discover the treasures of Ancient Egypt, Greece, the Enlightenment and, of course, the Rosetta Stone amongst much more!
Other things to note
The Museum is free to enter, you can wander around by yourself for no charge but I can show you everything you expect to see in 2 hours.
The entry queues can be long, give yourself time to get through security and keep in touch, I’ll see you there.

Melissa and her colleague Natasha are two lovely ladies. They go out of their way to give you a memorable tour of the museum. The tour was informative and funny as well. Especially the group challenges. The tour is definitely worthwhile to get a short overview of the main items of the collection. Five star experience!
