On this family-friendly, British Museum Tour for Kids, you will explore the highlights of the world-famous collection of ancient treasures housed within the grand halls and galleries of the renowned British Museum.
The British Museum is a grand, imposing building, situated in the heart of London, and constructed along the same style and dimensions as the Greek Parthenon. Equipped with an interactive book filled with fun activities to help your kids make the most out of the museum and engage with its dazzling and fascinating collection of ancient treasures, your expert private guide will show you the highlights of this vast collection from all over the ancient world.
You’ll learn about how to translate the Rosetta Stone, what it says – and what it tells us about life and trade in the ancient world. You’ll be able to see the incredible mummies from ancient Egypt and learn all about their burial rituals, beauty standards, and belief system – with an array of fascinating gods and goddesses and stunning artwork.
You’ll also discover the findings from the Sutton Hoo ship, including the famous helmet—a discovery that revealed a far more sophisticated society existed in the early middle ages than we first thought – with intricate weapons, jewelry, and shipbuilding techniques.
Explore fascinating marble statues from Ancient Greece and Rome, and see the Lewis Chessmen and the amazing Easter Island head. Your extraordinary tour of the British Museum – through ancient lands like Egypt, Persia, and Mesopotamia – ends with a stunning look at the Parthenon marbles. The museum was originally built to house these ancient sculptures brought over from Greece by Lord Elgin, and you’ll hear all about the controversy surrounding them. Learn about the goddess Athena to whom the city of Athens and Parthenon Temple was dedicated and admire the incredible skill of the ancient sculptors as you discover the warring centaurs and graceful Caryatids!
Your adventures through the British Museum will end at the Parthenon Marbles. From here your guide will show you the bookshop and cafe, and the exit. You can choose to stay and explore further or step back outside into the bustling streets of London.
