Would you like to tour the British Museum to see the Bible related items?
Clive Anderson, Glenn Shotton, Ian Cooper and Mike Keeping regularly guide groups around the Museum and you are welcome to join one of these groups. All our guides are serving Pastors and will do their best to accommodate any reasonable request.
If you would prefer to organise a tour specifically for your own group, please contact email to Clive (email@example.com) for further details.
To join a group?
From the schedule below, select the dates convenient to you. But you must let us know in advance by sending an email to Clive (firstname.lastname@example.org). Providing that day is not already full Clive will send you details of the day's arrangements.
To enable a group to be comfortably taken around the Museum 20 people is the desired maximum. If a larger number is to be catered for then more than one guide is required. We will gladly arrange a separate date for groups of ten or more.
Entrance to the British Museum is free and we make no charge for the tours. However, it is appreciated if groups would offset the travel costs which amount to around £35 per guide. Any further gift is left to the group's discretion, but nothing is requested or expected.
Who will lead?
We cannot guarantee which members of the team will be leading a tour on a particular day.
What does a tour involve?
We meet at 10.45 for an 11.00 start for the ground floor galleries 1.00 break for lunch,1.45 to 3.45 for upstairs galleries. But times can be adjusted to suit your requirements. You can buy Lunch in the Museum or bring your own and eat outside (the preference for most of us.) We do not run our tours on a Sunday.
What preparation do you need?
We strongly encourage you to purchase beforehand a copy of "Through the British Museum with the Bible" and to bring it with you for the tour. Click Here if you would like to purchase. You may also be interested to know that we have produced two activity books for children 8-12 years to twin with the Travel Guide:Kings, pharaohs, and bandits and Romans, gladiators and games. These are both available in the Museum Children's Shop.
