This website offers an incredible array of games, stories, activities, and virtual tours about historical topics gleaned from museums and galleries throughout the United Kingdom that are engaging and fun.

When you get to the site just click on the icon menu to dive right in and explore topics such as:

  • Ancient Civilizations
  • Anglo-Saxons
  • Vikings
  • Romans
  • Tudors
  • Victorians
  • Science & Technology
  • And much more!

Click on any topic and a new page opens with a menu of offerings related to that topic that include interactive, multi-media games and activities that teach history as they entertain.  These items are linked to the websites of museums and galleries in the UK where exhibits related to the topic are on display. You simply won’t believe the variety of information and make-and-do ideas to extend the learning.  Plus there are links to related sites if you want to explore the topic further.

This site provides enough material to satisfy any world history curriculum in a way that’s much more engaging than textbooks.
