BRITISH MUSEUM FOR KIDS TOUR

Child oriented British Museum tour for families

Tour Description

In our 2.5-hour British Museum tour for families, you will explore this fantastic museum and one of the top rated attractions in London. Led by a kid-friendly guide, we make sure that all the family will have an enjoyable, fun and educational experience.

Founded in 1753 when Sir Hans Sloane left his collection to the nation, the British Museum is the world’s oldest national public museum, with a collection of over 8 million breathtaking exhibits that illustrate over two million years of human history from prehistoric times to the present day.

During this tour you will visit some of the most important sections in the museum, such as the Egyptian collection, which is the most extensive in Europe, as well as the Greek and Anglo Saxon collections. With the use of visual aids and child-oriented activities, your guide will show and explain to you a fascinating selection of artefacts and findings that have left a fundamental impact on the history of human kind.

You will see the Rosetta Stone, which was discovered by a French captain named Pierre Bouchard in 1799, and which gives us many details of three thousand years of Ancient Egyptian history. Then there is the colossal pink/grey granite monumental statue of Ramses II and a number of Egyptian mummies, including the five-thousand-year-old “Ginger”.

In the Greek section you will admire the breathtaking Elgin marbles, the Athens Parthenon Sculptures, which have been on permanent public display in the British Museum since 1817, the Eneid Monument and the Discus Thrower, a Greek sculpture depicting a youthful ancient Greek athlete throwing a discus.

In the Anglo Saxon section you will be able to see the beautiful objects found in the Sutton Hoo ship burial site dating from the early 7th century, including jewellery, coins, helmets and much more besides.

Your guide, passionate about history and archaeology and an expert on child-oriented tours, will fascinate you with stories and legends about the ancient world, and at the and of the tour you will feel like you have a better understanding of the history of humanity.

If you would like to share the experience at the British Museum with other families with children, we also organize a SMALL GROUP British Museum tour in which we combine more than one family in the group for a maximum of12 people. It will be also a great way to spend a memorable time at one of the most important museums in the world!
