On the guided tour you will discover a huge collection of 6000 years of human history including items from all over the world such as samurai armour, medals from different eras, remains of ancient civilisations and much more.

Your private guide will delve into the history of the museum's most important objects, primitive tribes and fallen empires. Thanks to this private experience you will be able to ask him all the questions you can think of throughout the tour.

    Très satisfaits par notre visite au BM! Etant guide de musée et diplômée en histoire de l'art, j'avais de hautes attentes. Notre guide, Adam (je ne suis plus sûre, mais il était très grand), était parfait. Sympathique, très cultivé (niveau Thèse), il a su replacer les objets dans leur contexte avec concision et humour, ce qui a permit d'en saisir toute la dimension, tout en restant parfaitement accessible. Très à l'heure, ne soyez pas en retard!
