Dynamically designed over 6000sq ft and three levels, The O2 bubble makes history accessible and exciting for all ages, interests and depths of cultural knowledge. Having enthralled over one million visitors with the world famous Tuthankhamun and The Golden Age of the Pharaohs (which last visited Britain in 1973), we then welcomed Dr. Gunther von Hagens and his controversial study of the human form - Body Worlds. From 2009 the British Music Experience will fill the space. Using state of the art effects and high end digital interactivity this deservedly hyped exhibition shows how rock, pop, dance and many other genres were formed and have influenced the last sixty years of British culture. The British Music Experience will also provide the perfect backdrop for a range of corporate and private events thanks to it's huge "finale" space. It can host music gigs, champagne receptions, awards shows, banquets and parties. Private evening viewings away from the daytime crowds can also be arranged.
Currently there are no events for the British Music Experience London .
