What To Expect

The British Museum
Meet your guide and the rest of the small group just outside of the main entrance of the British Museum, and start your exploration of

one of the best-known museums in the world with its impressive collections that include some of the most important pieces ever discovered, such as the Rosetta Stone, the Sutton Hoo Helmet, the Eligin Marbles and many more.

The British Museum is one of the largest museums in the world, covering an area of over 92,000 square meters (990,000 square feet). Because of its size, visitors are very likely to get lost in its many rooms and galleries. This is one more reason why you should join our tour, where our professional guide will lead you to discover the main highlights of the museum in a fun and entertaing way, making sure your kids will be engaged in their learning experience.

In the Egyptian section of the museum, our kid-friendly guide will fascinate you and your children with stories about Ancient Egypt as you discover one of the biggest collections of Ancient Egyptian art in the world, including “Ginger”, the 5400 year-old mummy, and the Rosetta Stone, which helped people get a better understanding of the Ancient Egyptian writing system called hieroglyphics. Only the Egyptian Museum in Cairo has a bigger collection!

In the Greek section you will find out about life in ancient Athens as well as the heroes and heroines of Greek mythology. You will also be able to admire some of the

sculptures from the Parthenon in Athens also known as the ‘Elgin Marbles’ .

In room 41 you will discover the Sutton Hoo Treasures and behold the beautiful objects that were found in this famous ship burial, including jewellery, coins, helmets and more.

This small group tour is a fantastic way to visit the museum in the company of other families with the excellent supervision of a guide with vast experience leading tours with children. The whole family will love it!!

Fascinating and enlightening

Roberta was knowledgeable, theatrical, engaging and friendly.

The museum would be very overwhelming and this was an excellent way to see the highlights but also go deeper into a few key areas to put the objects in their historical context including their path to the museum due to her extensive knowledge base.

She made it fun for the kids but equally educational for the adults.

Strongly recommend

Loved the tour with Roberta. After the tour I checked a site that showed the top 10 items to see at the Museum. We saw 8 of them and I knew more than the writings in the article. She was engaging. She had a parents vs kids competition. We loved it.

Would recommend this tour to anyone that wants to learn a lot. I’ve seen the Museum before and learned almost nothing. Thank you!!!!!!
Great Tour to Introduce Children to the Natural History Museum

Our tour guide, Dan, was engaging to both our 10 year old daughter (who is tough to crack) and me (her late 30s mother). Dan guided us through the museum to show us highlights while giving us the high level overview where needed but able to go into great depth or detail on any questions we had. The pace was perfect --- no time to get bored, but not flying through the museum so fast that you are exhausted. I'm so glad we booked this tour to make the most of the afternoon we had at the museum!
DO THIS TOUR! You'll be glad you did!

My son (age 12) and I took a quick trip to London over the MLK holiday weekend, and made the British Museum the main reason for our visit--doing something educational. After having strolled through many museums in the past, normally overwhelmed by the vast array of things, trying to read all the little notes about each item while hoping to not miss the big picture, I've decided that having a tour guide makes a museum FAR more fun and worthwhile! I set up our tour rather last minute, but our guide, Dan, was quick to get in touch and give me the details about where to meet for our scheduled tour. It was clear and easy and Dan's guidance through the enormous British Museum made our trip to London an unforgettable success! Here's what my son had to say about Dan: You can tell he loves his work, he was very knowledgeable and experienced, he packed a lot into our tour and made it memorable, and he told great stories about each artifact. I would add that he always had an answer for the questions we asked, and we covered a lot of ground in our nearly 3 hour tour. It was fast-paced and the time flew by! Highly recommended! Thanks, Dan!
Fantastic Tour

Roberta took my 9 year old daughter throughout history from the Assyrians to the Eastern Islands statues in a fascinating 2 hour tour of the British Museum. She was engaging, clear, focussed on my daughter's questions and comments. Instead of me wondering around without a clear path, she took us to carefully selected pieces giving her a great hands-on lecture.
