Located in the beautiful Bloomsbury neighborhood, the British Museum holds one of the richest and most eclectic public art collections in the world. From the Rosetta Stone, to the lion hunt, to the king's palace at Nineveh, the museum is packed full of artwork that can enhance your family's understanding of the ancient world. Our walk begins just outside the museum, where we'll learn how it was founded and how the passion for collecting is still at the core of this incredible institution today. From here we'll go inside and, using fun educational tools, pick a theme or a particular civilization and follow its development throughout time. We may, for instance, focus on the development of scripture from cuneiform to hieroglyphic to our modern alphabet. We'll also make sure to include a visit to the Egyptian mummies and the Parthenon marbles and, depending on the children’s interests, may also focus on the development of civilization in England.
Note: In order to plan the best possible experience for your children, it would be helpful for us to know some background. Have they traveled to other countries in the past? If so, where? Have they studied any subjects in school that would relate to the walk? Are they interested in art, music, even food? The more you can tell us, the better.
There are 8 in my group but your website won't allow me to include more than 7 participants. Can't you make an exception?
