Until the 17th April you can find out how the flames spread across the whole of London in just a few days, destroying most of the city, via a series of installations and interactive displays.

Other sections are devoted to learning about the life of Londoners in the 17th century, and to understanding how the capital bounced back from the disaster.

The exhibition is part of a series of events called Great Fire 350. On 2nd September, the anniversary of the date on which the fire broke out, the London's Burning festival took place. On the evening of 4th September, a 120-metre-long wooden sculpture depicting London in 1666 was set alight on the Thames.

The film is presented as a sequel to the 2010 film, Alice in Wonderland by Tim Burton. In fact, the two films share many of the cast members in common: Mia Wasikowska plays Alice, Johnny Depp the Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter is the Red Queen while Anne Hathaway stars as the White Queen.
In this new film chapter, Alice passes through a magical mirror that carries her to Underland where she meets her old friends. Here, the White Queen sends the young heroine on a mission back in time to stop the Lord of Time and save the Mad Hatter.

The celebration did not originate in Mexico but in the Mexican-American community in California. It spread around the rest of the United States during the twentieth century where it became a symbol of Mexican culture. It is above all celebrated in parts of the country where Latino communities are widespread, such as Los Angeles, Chicago and Houston. Several gastronomic and musical events take place on this day. Folkloric shows of mariachi groups are organized in squares and stalls are set up offering traditional food. Educational events are held in schools on the historical significance of the anniversary. cinco de mayo

Parades are held in cities nationwide in countries where the 17th of March is a national holiday. One of the symbols of Saint Paddy is the colour green, a colour that literally invades the streets: people dress in green clothes and wear clover-shaped decorations (another symbol of the saint) and the most famous monuments are illuminated in green. An important festival has been held in Dublin in recent years lasting several days. The pageant companies, accompanied by marching bands, march past a crowd of 500,000 people during the Festival Parade.

According to this Christian tradition, it's the time when you can allow yourself some final excesses before the period of Lent. People in England consume pancakes on this day.  The (pan) cakes are made from a batter fried in a pan and covered with syrup or lemon topped with sugar. Several Pancake Races are held in London and in other parts of the country on Shrove Tuesday. EnglishPancakeRace

The race requires masked participants to run while holding a frying pan containing a pancake that they flip in the air. The Rehab charity organization in London organizes the Parliamentary Pancake Race where members of the House of Commons, the House of Lords and members of the press compete against each other.

According to tradition, it's up to the rodent to reveal whether the cold weather will last much longer or not. If the sky is clear, the groundhog will be scared of its own shadow and take refuge in its burrow. Should this be the case, winter will last another 6 weeks. However, if it's a cloudy day, spring will come early. The tradition originated in the Christian feast of Candlemas. A Scottish rhyme states that «If Candlemas Day is bright and clear, there'll be two winters in the year». Groundhog_Day_per_box_175

Two of the main temporary exhibitions currently present are "Celts: Art and Identity" and "Egypt: faith after the pharaohs". The first recounts 2,500 years of art and history through artefacts produced by the different ethnic groups grouped together under the name "Celts". From Iron Age statues to the Celtic football jersey (Celtic F.C. is a Glaswegian football club), the items on exhibit show the influence of Celtic art on contemporary European culture. The exhibition will run until the end of January. You can find out more by following @britishmuseum and #Celts on Twitter.
The museum and 4,634 of its items can now be explored at the new website created in partnership with the Google Cultural Institute. Here you can learn more about how Iron Age people lived in Britain.

Until the 17th April you can find out how the flames spread across the whole of London in just a few days, destroying most of the city, via a series of installations and interactive displays. Other sections are devoted to learning about the life of Londoners in the 17th century, and to understanding how the capital bounced back from the disaster. great fire London
