This Funzing Experience:
On this tour, your guide will use some of the best-loved objects in the British Museum to tell one of the greatest stories there is: the story of how humans, those clever apes, dominated the planet.

The path will take you from our origins in the wild to the first stirrings of human civilisation and the wonders of the Enlightenment.

The Rosetta Stone, a double-headed Aztec serpent, the Lewis chessmen, a mechanical solar system, the Parthenon sculptures, a statue of Ramesses II and the Holy Thorn Reliquary… These are some of the artefacts that will help you to travel through time.

Through them, explore how the agricultural revolution transformed our world, why we have gods, kings, money and writing, the role of germs, war and empire – and how we learned to question everything.

At the end of the tour you will have seen many of the museum’s highlights and understand a little better why the world around you is the way it is.

The tour will last around two and a half hours, with a short break in the middle, during which you can buy drinks and refreshments and get to know your tour guide and fellow adventurers. Read Less
