The Nereid Monument might look like a small Greek temple from a distance, but it is actually a tomb built in early 4th century BC by a Xanthos ruler, Arbinas. This elegant tomb, which is built in classic Greek architectural style, contains ionic columns and life-size Nereids (sea nymphs) between them. The Nereid Monument will be an awesome sight for your kids and they will love to stay around it for a while to admire its beauty and elegance.
Elgin Marbles: Centaur and Lapith Sculptures
The Elgin Marbles in Room 18 of the British museum is where you should ago after seeing the Xanthos Tomb. The sculptures in the room from the Parthenon are a figure of controversy, as several archeologists claim that they should be located in Greece instead of Britain. However, no matter who has them, they are well protected at the right humidity and temperature by the authorities because they look stunning even in their ruined state.
The Rosetta Stone won’t amaze most kids at the initial sight, but if you tell them a bit about the discovery of the stone and how it helped archeologists to crack Egyptian hieroglyphs, then they will find it a lot more intriguing. So, learn whatever you can about Rosetta Stone before you go on a private tour British Museum, because it will help you to engage and entertain your kids for sure.
