Stop At: The British Museum, Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3DG England

Head to the main entrance of the British Museum where you will meet your kid-friendly guide and be ready to start this amazing journey through the history of humankind!

The first part of the tour takes you back in time to the ancient valley of the River Nile to witness the largest collection of Egyptian relics outside Egypt, making it the main highlight of the tour. With the use of themed activities and games you and your kids will discover the wonders of Ancient Egypt, including the Rosetta Stone, which helped to decode and understand hieroglyphs, a 5,000-year-old sand-dried mummy, wall paintings from Nebamun’s tomb and sculptures of Ramesses II.

After that, you and your family will have the opportunity to see some of the other highlights that the British Museum has to offer. You can travel to Ancient Greece to discover the fascinating Parthenon Sculptures, classical marble statues m ade under the supervision of the Greek architect Phidias. Later you will find yourselves in medieval England, where you will be intrigued by the mysterious Sutton Hoo burial treasure. These relics from two early middle age cemeteries shed light on a period of English history which had long been considered a grey area between myth, legend and recorded history. Our professional guide will share anecdotes, stories and use specific tools and activities to entertain you and the kids. You will absolutely love this tour!

Not only did Aaron engage our boys and adapt to their interests, but he also shared details about objects that went beyond what was posted on the exhibits. Despite being jetlagged, we weren't ready for the tour to end.
