Family activities

New for 2014! Family Trail

Pick up one of our free new Family Trails! Packed with fun facts, exploration games and drawing activities, the trail will take you on a journey of discovery across the British Library to uncover a 6ft tall atlas, a library built by a king and an optical illusion made of books!

Available from the Information Desk in the main entrance, or download a PDF copy to print yourself.

From 17 to 31 October, we are taking part in the Night at the Museum Mile trail for families. Visit us and other museums in the area for a chance to win a trip to the US. Find out more.
