The British Museum has released an app to coincide with its latest exhibition; Life and Death in Pompeii and Herculaneum.
The app gives users the chance to browse the 250 exhibits on display at the museum as well exploring maps of the area where these ancient cities sat in the Bay of Naples.
Built by mobile app developer Apadmi, it also contains exclusive video content including interviews with the curator.
It was created to help those who may not be able to attend the exhibition in person due to its popularity, to explore the sights, sounds and artifacts.
The exhibition curator Paul Roberts said: “We are delighted to invite tablet and smart phone users all over the world to explore the content of our Life and Death in Pompeii and Herculaneum exhibition. Good clear explanations and beautiful, detailed images of the remarkable objects offer an exciting opportunity to investigate the stories of these cities in the pail of your hand.”
The app is available now for iPad, iPhone and will be on android devices from May 2nd, whilst the exhibition is running until the 28th September 2013.
