The British Museum exhibitions available on-line to help you #stayhome

The British museum is closed temporarily due to the coronavirus outbreak but it continues to remain accessible though its digital channels.

Hartwig Fischer, Director of the British Museum said:

We’ve taken this decision with a heavy heart but our absolute priority is the health and safety of our staff and visitors. At present we don’t know when we’ll be able to reopen but we hope to be able to provide further updates soon. We’ll be updating and adding to digital content during the period we’re closed to allow visitors to stay in touch with the Museum. We’ll share our collections, research and programmes in new ways that will not require a trip to the Museum. We look forward to welcoming our visitors back to the Museum as soon as we can.

The Museum remains accessible through its digital channels. And now seat comfortably and be ready to travel through its huge collection worth hours and days of exploration.
