Samsung Electronics is proud to sponsor the Digital Discovery Centre at the British Museum, as part of our global commitment to youth and education. We have been working together in partnership since 2008, developing an innovative digital learning programme offered to schools and families. We are delighted that over 20,000 visitors every year are using Samsung’s latest technology to explore and discover the Museum’s collection in new ways. By introducing our advanced technology into a learning environment, we hope to open the door to a world of possibilities.
