Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Museums are going through a tough time right now, especially London’s smaller, independent institutions, which are facing risk of closure. To try and help the country connect with its cultural institutions while their doors remain closed, BBC Arts has launched Museum From Home, a whole day dedicated to curators, art experts, exhibitions and museum collections around the UK.

To start things off at 10.30am on BBC4 historian and TV presenter Dr Janina Ramirez will discuss Stay Home, a new initiative allowing the public to share their lockdown experiences. Else where the Museum of London will be opening a free digital display of its exhibition ‘The Clash: London Calling’, and from 10am will stream an unseen behind the scenes short film about the making of the London Calling album. 

There’ll also be a chance to take a look at the Tate’s Warhol exhibition, see Titian behind closed doors at the National Gallery and explore the life of illustrator Aubrey Beardsley with ‘Sherlock’ star Mark Gatiss

Museum From Home will take place across radio, TV and social media. Follow #MuseumFromHome from 10am Thursday April 30 for updates.
