British Museum Tour Itinerary

The British Museum was the world’s free public museum and was first opened to the public in 1753. 

Sir Hans Sloane donated his extensive collection of 20, 000 pieces and the museum has grown ever since. And after visiting you will feel like you’ve traveled around the globe and seen so much along the way. 

Your guide will be sure to show you the museum’s highlights and believe us there are many. They include:

  • The famous Rosetta Stone: the key to unlocking the hieroglyphic language
  • The Parthenon Marbles: intricate statues from the Acropolis carved 2500 years ago in Athens
  • The Sutton Hoo Hoard: the contents of a Saxon ship burial and the subject of the recent film, ‘The Dig’. 
  • Ancient Egyptian Mummies
  • The Easter Island statue called Hoakananaia 

*Please note that the British Museum may close off sections of the museum to the public without prior notice.
