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.

It’s really hard not to fall in love with London, it’s even more difficult when you have a guide like Becky who effortlessly helps that process along by giving tours like what we experienced at the British Museum. Smart, funny, energetic, and full of facts, Becky made our tour of the British Museum exciting and memorable. She navigates a museum in a way that would impress Francis Drake, tells historic stories about crime, drama, love, and war that would put some Netflix specials to shame, and has a great sense of humor to keep spirits high along the way. She was professional, brought her A-game, is obviously passionate about what she does, and ensured everyone on the tour gained something from it. I was honestly nervous going into this and fully expected a dry-witted museum snob to give the tour. Within twenty minutes of meeting our guide , I wanted to treat her to a round (or three) at the nearest pub. Becky kicks museum arse and looks great doing it! By the time we were done with the tour I had a newfound love of historic drama, museums, and London (naturally). She will be our go-to-guide for any future trips and historic escapades we embark on. Can’t wait to visit the national archives on our next trip! Thank you Becky 😊

My visit to the African section at the British Museum, in particular the Benin Bronze collection was an interesting experience. Our guide, Anthony, was very knowledgeable and engaging in his explanations and I enjoyed our conversations on the origins and traditional significance of the items. I enjoyed our debate on whether these ornaments should be returned to their homeland in Nigeria. Amazingly beautiful African Art.
