    The British Museum
    Stop: 2 hours
    Join your expert local guide at Starbucks Coffee and start exploring the oldest public national museum in the world! On this two-hour visit, you’ll explore all the highlights of the museum, including the Rosetta Stone, the Parthenon Marbles, the Easter Island statues and much more. At the start of this tour you will learn about the life of founder Sir Hans Sloane and you will discover his passion for collecting objects from around the world. By his death in 1753 he had collected over 70,000 items that he gave to King George II, for the nation’s leaning and enjoyment. Continue your visit by exploring the Rosetta Stone. Your tour guide will give you insightful information about this granodiorite stele and its importance for deciphering Egyptian hieroglyphs. Your guide will also take you to other iconic artefacts such as the towering Easter Island statues, the medieval Lewis chessmen pieces, the detailed marble carvings that originally lined the temple of the Parthenon, the Ancient Egyptian Nebamun paintings and the controversial Roman Warren Silver Cup from AD 15. As you explore the highlights of the British Museum, your expert guide will take you back in time and paint a picture of ancient societies that left their mark on history. By the end of your visit, you will not only have seen the mayor highlights of the British Museum, but you will also have a better understanding of the origins of our world and our evolution.

Unfortunately, our Sandemans tour guide never showed up and we were not notified in advance of the guide's absence, even though we paid for the tour in advance. We ended up touring the museum on our own, which as still a great experience.
