British Museum

The British Museum is one of world’s most fascinating museums – inside you’ll find some of the most important treasures of the world. Its remarkable collection spans thousands of years and, in short, tells the epic story of human civilisation.

Its size is breathtaking too: there are over 80,000 items on display (less than 1% of the entire collection) so if you wanted to thoroughly explore the Museum, best set aside months, if not years.

But fear not, we’ll be taking a highlights tour of the collection, and along the way we’ll see the legendary sculptures from the Greek Parthenon, find out why the Rosetta Stone was a code breaker that unlocked Egyptian hieroglyphs, see some amazing Egyptian mummies and find out what treasures were hidden in an Anglo-Saxon burial ship.
