Begin your tour admiring the breathtaking ceiling of the museum. With a 2-acre (0.8-ha) space enclosed by a spectacular glass roof, the Great Court is a work of art in its own right.

Wander around 70 galleries and visit the extensive collection of antiquities, including the Parthenon Frieze, the marble sculpture created to adorn the upper part of the Parthenon, and the world-renowned Rosetta Stone, used as the way to decipher complex Egyptian hieroglyphics.

Death and afterlife rituals played an important role in the Ancient Egyptian society. See ancient mummies and learn about the mummification process and how the dead bodies were preserved for thousands of years.

This is a great introductory tour of the British

Museum. Our Guide Augusta was knowledgeable and could jump from one ancient civilization to another. One remark : the hotel has. Hanged name and is under renovation. So the tour needs at the entrance of the park on the other side. Please update meeting point.
