The Free British Museum Tour is a must-see attraction for anyone interested in human history and culture. Founded in 1753 by King George II, it is the world’s first public national museum and is home to an incredible collection of artifacts that span across different time periods and regions of the world. The museum’s Greek Revival architecture is an impressive sight to behold and adds to the grandeur of the exhibits housed within its walls. One of the museum’s most fascinating exhibits is the ancient Egyptian collection, which features a wide range of objects and artifacts that provide insight into the beliefs, customs, and practices of this ancient civilization. Visitors can learn about the ancient Egyptians’ beliefs surrounding the afterlife and their practice of preserving the body through mummification, as well as see real mummies and other funerary objects.

There are so many wonderful things you can see with the Free British Museum Tour! With your expert guide you will visit one of the highlights of the museum: the Elgin Marbles, a controversial collection of ancient Greek sculptures that were taken from the Parthenon in Athens in the early 19th century. Visitors can learn about the heated debate surrounding their ownership and the ongoing efforts to return them to Greece. The museum also houses the Sutton Hoo Helmet, a stunning and intricate piece of Anglo-Saxon art that is believed to have belonged to a 7th-century English King. The helmet is a symbol of the Anglo-Saxon’s military prowess and artistic sophistication and is one of the most important discoveries in British archaeology.

Finally, visitors can marvel at the Rosetta Stone, a key artifact in the deciphering of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics. The stone features inscriptions in three different scripts and was used by scholars to decode the once-undecipherable hieroglyphics. Whether you’re a history enthusiast, a culture lover, or simply looking for an exciting and informative way to spend your time, the British Museum Tour is the perfect choice. With knowledgeable guides leading the way, you can explore the wonders of the world and gain a deeper understanding of humanity’s milestones and achievements. Best of all, this tour is completely free, making it accessible to everyone who wants to experience the magic of the British Museum.
