Who is it for?
The Ashmolean Adventure is designed for families with children aged 7–11, but there is plenty for all ages to enjoy.
When is it available?
Available at weekends in term time and every day of the Christmas school holidays from Thu 21 Dec to Sun 7 Jan incl. when the Museum is open. (NB We are closed on 24, 25 & 26 Dec and 1 Jan.)

What is the Ashmolean Adventure?
Featuring 11 objects and paintings, this new digital guide for families offers an interactive exploration of some of the Museum's most intriguing objects through a variety of multimedia activities.
On a multimedia device, rub away a mummy to reveal what's inside, hear musical instruments come to life, design an Islamic tile or play with perspective in a painting. The Ashmolean Adventure digital guide is packed with games and quizzes, sounds and stories, as well as design and drawing activities – each activity is different because each object is different.
Please note that one activity about Impressionist paintings refers to a painting that is currently not on display due to changing gallery exhibition displays.
