The British Museum's collection spans more than two million years of human history and culture, all under one roof. Students can engage and experience the unique collection through resources, sessions and gallery visits.

With galleries full of objects to support history topics such as ancient Egypt, ancient Greece, British prehistory and Benin, the Museum is the perfect place for your students to find out about the past.

Displays highlighting objects from the modern world offer an opportunity to find out about the world around us and inspire communication, artistic and citizenship skills.
