Within the hushed halls of the British Museum stand the wonders of the ancient world. This amazing collection of world culture is an unparalleled center of beauty and learning – a must for all lovers of history and art! Join our tour for a visit to the Ancient Egyptian, Assyrian, Greek and East Asian exhibitions.
Led by your native British Mandarin-speaking guide and passionate historian, you will see the stone forms of Egyptian pharaohs and gods, the mummies of the dead, and the mysterious Rosetta stone; stunning carvings from the Pantheon of Athens; the artworks of mighty Assyrian warrior-kings; and beautiful jade from the Far East.
Alongside the treasures of the ancient world, this tour will also consider the Museum itself – its birth in the height of imperial British power, and its role as a centre of scholarship and learning.
The tour will last approximately 2 hours and includes a short break for a chance to grab some food in the majestic surroundings of the Great Court if you wish.
Children are very welcome on the tour.
