"The Grand Tour of the British Museum"

This JW Bible tour includes most of the notable and useful artefacts in the British Museum that will assist with your personal study, faith and ministry.

It explores the links between the pagan practices of the Egyptians and the religious rites of Christendom today; visits the gates of an Assyrian city and heads towards the land of Mesopotamia! Your group will also explore the origins of language and writing, before seeing some specific and truly amazing examples in the form of tablets and carvings that will strengthen your faith in the Bible's historical and prophetic records.

This tour lasts about 2 hours, with a short comfort break halfway, and is conducted by one of our Bible Tours theocratic guides, almost all pioneers or Bethelites who we are supporting in this.

The tour usually starts Saturday at 10.30am and 2:20pm and Tuesday and Thursday at 10:30am with other days and times available by special arrangement only. Pre-booking is essential for all tours... bookings will now CLOSE at least ONE day prior to the tour.

Come as smart as you can, but we know you may well have travelled a good distance to get to the British Museum in London. You are welcome to take notes and bring a Bible. Be ALERT in London: watch this video.

When to Come

We need to check if a guide is available for your language, so it may take 2-3 days to organise. Most guides are available on Friday, Saturday or Sunday.

The guides prefer to have 2 weeks prior notice, if possible, to plan their time or they may be unavailable. It is vital to pre-pay to ensure that the guide has allocated their time for you.

We do not use pre-recorded tapes as the artefacts are often moved or changed.
