    What to Expect
    Meet your art historian guide near the British Museum and go inside to start your private tour. When you book, list any special interests you have, such as art, history or culture, so your private guide can prepare your personalized tour in advance.

    One of the world’s premier museums — on a par with Paris’ Louvre and New York’s Metropolitan museum — this world-famous institution houses a vast collection of historical artifacts and art across more than 70 galleries.

    With your guide providing enlightening commentary throughout, stroll around to discover some of the museum’s highlights. View treasures such as the Parthenon frieze from the Acropolis at Athens; the fabled Rosetta Stone and Egyptian mummies; and check out more of the artifacts and sections as you wish.
