Description

There are eight million artifacts in the British Museum's unbelievable collection, making this enormous museum a London must-see. Join a guide and get an in-depth tour as you find out what makes the highlights so special. See the Rosetta Stone, Egyptian mummies, and stand in the museum's Great Court – the largest covered square in Europe.

The British Museum is the perfect place for a bit of treasure hunting! Your expert guide will take you on a tour through some of the museum's most incredible objects, which represent human history, achievement, culture and art across almost two million years.

See the incredible Rosetta Stone. Dating from 196 BC, this mysterious item contains three different scripts and was the key to helping modern scholars translate Egyptian hieroglyphics.

Witness the original Greek sculptures from the facade of the Parthenon in Athens, a 2,500-year-old temple dedicated to the Greek goddess Athena. See the Lapiths and Centaurs in their eternal battle, then check out the mummies. Nubkheperre Intef rests here, after ruling in Egypt's 17th dynasty around 1600 BC.

There's so much to uncover, and after your tour you're free to stay inside and carry on exploring!
