The trail, which is open to all, has been inspired CBBC series Relic: Guardians of the Museum and will challenge your skill and ingenuity.

It is free and feature objects in the museum's collection that have been included in A History of the World.

There are five challenges for visitors to complete based on objects from the Oriental Museum.


The CBBC show was developed in partnership with the British Museum.

Jamie Rea, Executive Producer at CBBC, said: "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."
