The British Music Experience is an interactive museum located in the O2 Arena, dedicated to the last 60 years of British popular music.

From jazz to pop, there are over 600 pieces of the most sought after music memorabilia of all time on display, including original hand written lyrics, famous outfits, instruments and other amazing personal artefacts from The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Sex Pistols, Culture Club, Stone Roses, Spice Girls, Coldplay, Amy Winehouse and hundreds more.

The museum contains a wide and varied collection of both genuine musical artefacts and interactive experiences using digital technologies. These exhibits are arranged thematically to explore different areas of interest in music.

Surrounding these exhibits are seven zones exploring different eras in British music since 1945 up to the present day, held together by a giant timeline containing thousands of facts, headlines, images, videos and animations.

A key feature of the British Music Experience is taking part – visitors can play guitar, drums, and keyboards, or sing and mix a track in the Gibson Interactive Studio.
