The British Museum at Home

At The British Museum, we deliver an innovative, broad-ranging programme of activities, collaborative projects and learning opportunities with, and for, local communities.

We aim to make the Museum a meeting place for cross-cultural exchange and engagement and to remove barriers to participation. We build relationships with community partners that deepens both collection and community knowledge, celebrates the contribution of our communities and affects positive societal change.

To celebrate Silver Sunday 2020, we invite you to explore The British Museum and discover two million years of human history and culture.

There are lots of ways to connect to The British Museum online, so you can get your culture fix whenever and wherever.

Virtual tour: Explore the Museum’s galleries from home and get closer to the collection, using Google Street View.

Curator’s in discussion: Join British Museum as they discuss their research and what it’s like to work with some of the world’s oldest and most significant objects.

Blog: Read fascinating insights from across the Museum including staff picks of objects they were most looking forward to seeing when the Museum reopened.

Podcast: The British Museum podcast delves into every aspect of the Museum, from archives to Egyptian black goo, from conservation to Doctor Who, in Bloomsbury and beyond.
