British Museum - New ways to explore the Museum this summer

This summer there is something to engage and inspire everyone – from interactive storytelling to a new wet play session for children under 5, both part of the programme of activities related to the BP exhibition Sunken cities: Egypt’s lost worlds.
Our new digital family guide launches this month too. Discover, discuss and play together in this fun interactive game that takes you round the Museum. Pick one up from the audio guide desk in the Great Court for £6 per group.
The whole family can also take advantage of free digital workshops every Saturday and Sunday in the Samsung Digital Discovery Centre. This summer, teens can learn coding skills using the new BBC micro:bit to bring the Museum’s collection to life.
