Relic hunters flock to Haslemere Museum

Ammonites
Race against time to become a successful relic hunter

Inspired by the CBBC series 'Relic: Guardians of the Museum, the Relic Trail gives families a great reason to visit Haslemere Museum.

The CBBC show, developed in partnership with the British Museum, challenges children to put their skill and ingenuity to the test.

The Relic Trail will allow families to do exactly the same thing on their journey through the museum.

The trails are free and feature objects in the museum's collection that have contributed to the BBC's A History of the World project and website.

Memory, reasoning and problem-solving are just some of the skills that families will need as they race against time to become successful relic hunters!

Jamie Rea, Executive Producer at CBBC says:"Bringing history to life was the inspiration for the CBBC series and these trails give families the chance to do just that as they discover the stories and personalities behind their local museum's collection."

"We hope that the families taking part will not only love the challenge of completing the Relic Trails but will also learn something new about the objects they encounter."

The Relic Trail is happening at Haslemere Educational Museum, 78 High Street, Haslemere, Surrey GU27 2LA

Tel: 01428 642112 or see www.haslemeremuseum.co.uk

Opening hours are Tuesday - Saturday, 10.00 - 17.00. The museum is closed Bank Holidays, Sundays and Mondays.

A History of the World

A History of the World is a partnership between the BBC, the British Museum and museums across the UK.

Inspired by the British Museum/ BBC Radio 4 series A History of the World in 100 Objects, museums around the country have teamed up with the BBC in their area and chosen objects from their own collections that reflect world history from both a local and global perspective.

These objects are tagged in red on the Explorer function within the website www.bbc.co.uk/ahistoryoftheworld . Stories about these objects are being featured on radio and TV across the UK.
