The Royal Mint opens its virtual doors

The Royal Mint opens its virtual doors: Image 1 The Royal Mint Experience (RME) has this week announced a range of free interactive events to help keep people entertained, including a virtual tour of their exhibition, interactive storytelling sessions, virtual Spy School and a Dino Dig.

Online visitors can now step back in time to look at the 1,100-year history of The Royal Mint, and examine objects from the award-winning tourist attraction from the comfort of their own home. The virtual exhibition includes the silver Alfred the Great Penny, one of the first coins to state explicitly that it was minted in London, and the introduction of the modern day 50p. New items from the collection will be added over the coming weeks to tell the full story of The Royal Mint.

In addition to the virtual tour, the RME will also be holding a range of events via Facebook Live, including a Dinosaur-led session, with Deano the friendly dinosaur. Deano will help keep children fit with a work-out, followed by a hunt for eggs via a digital map. The event will also look at the effect global warming has on today’s species.

Popular RME event, Spy School, will also return but with a virtual twist and is perfect for any budding spy. In addition, an interactive storytelling session inspired by The Tale of Peter Rabbit will take place, which following the recent launch of the final Peter Rabbit™ 50p, has proved a huge hit. The interactive storytelling sessions are part of the #AtHomeWithPeterRabbit campaign which was launched by Penguin Random House Children’s who manage the Peter Rabbit brand.  

Clare MacLennan, the divisional director for The Royal Mint experience, comments: “With so many families staying at home, the Royal Mint experience is working hard to provide a range of fun, engaging virtual activities direct to your living rooms – for free! We feel passionately that during such unprecedented times, keeping children entertained and educated is so incredibly important and it doesn’t need to come at a cost.”

The Royal Mint has also recently launched a Kids Hub, offering free educational packs, interactive games and downloadable arts and crafts to try and alleviate any boredom and encourage home learning during the current pandemic. Having proved popular so far, the hub is being updated weekly with new activities to reflect the school curriculum. 

There will be two Facebook Live events weekly, and they will run every Tuesday and Thursday from the 28th April, at 10am, and will run for 6 weeks.
