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.

The size of the British Museum’s collection is overwhelming, and so we chose a small group tour that would focus on the highlights. It turned out that we were the only ones on the tour and so we and our guide Matilda had each other’s undivided attention. Despite her youth, Matilda has may years’ experience guiding tourists through museums and she is extremely knowledgeable about the British Museum. She gave us in-depth information about the museum’s most interesting and greatest treasures, including the Rosetta Stone and the Elgin Marbles. She is very conscious of colonial biases and the debated provenance of items in the collections. I particularly enjoyed seeing the Benin Bronzes and the immense Moai - a statue from Easter Island - and learning about how they were acquired and at what cost to the original owners. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and highly recommend Babylon Tours and our guide Matilda.

Museum is so large. The tour cuts to the chase and shows all the fabulous highlights. It would take hours on your own to find everything. Plus fabulous history facts thrown in. Makes history interesting

Our guide, Luis, was amazing! He was precisely on time and actually began the tour while we were in line. He noticed that hearing was a bit difficult for my husband, asked if adjustments were needed, and made sure that those adjustments were consistent throughout the tour. Luis made sure we viewed the top items as well as those which were most interesting to us.

Anthony Matthew’s was very knowledgeable, of course being an archeologist helped. Very entertaining and interesting in his explanation and description of the artifacts and items. Didn’t realize that 2 and half hours had passed. Highly recommend Anthony and this tour
