"...an exceptional tour guide. He provided excellent historical and human context to the objects in the British Museum and to the museum itself...was able to bring in his own field archaeological experience to enhance our understanding and appreciation for the amazing objects in the Museum and made our visit wonderful."
"In my experience, the more important the museum, the more necessary a guide, and I am officially obsessed with the one we had for the British Museum. Lawrence Owens is a rockstar archaeologist who knows how to keep kids’ attention with gruesome stories about ancient civilizations while imparting more education in a couple of hours than I’ve ingested in years."
"Lawrence is a force of nature, especially with young learners. He is masterful at speaking a teenager's language and using the right mix of gore, surprise, and irreverence to focus on a few key, big points. The result is that the young mind comes away piqued and asking to go deeper. Mission accomplished. Bravo."
"I can't say enough positive things about our tour with Lawrence at the British Museum. He was incredibly engaging, super knowledgeable and quite funny. Our girls (ages 12 and 9) had the best time for the entire 2.5-3 hour tour. Suffice to say without Lawrence we would not have had anywhere near such a successful time. INCREDIBLE!!! WORTH EVERY PENNY. Definitely book a tour...if he's available!!!"
"Dr. Lawrence Owens was truly a one of a kind guide. He was more than a guide. He was a professor and in the short time we spent with him received an amazing education."
"We saw the British Museum through different eyes, and he even quizzed us at the end! He is a must do for our next visit!"
"Lawrence quickly established a wonderful rapport with our 11-year-old, and led us all on a witty, enlightening tour through what would otherwise have been an overwhelming collection of artifacts. His fascinating personal experiences directly related to the objects on display, as well as his deep (and sometimes irreverent) knowledge of the cultural and historical context surrounding them made everything come to life. Do not miss the Assyrian collection if you are in Lawrence's company!"
