A private tour of the exhibition I object: Ian Hislop's search for dissent.

Many objects in the British Museum represent the ‘official’ view of history. But you can also find a range of alternative views, and uncover a rich history of protest and poking fun at authority. This exhibition has been guest curated by the journalist, satirist, writer and broadcaster Ian Hislop, Editor of Private Eye and team captain on the BBC’s Have I Got News For You and Curator Tom Hockenhull for the British Museum. Tom will take you on a tour of the exhibition to discover what the other people had to say – the downtrodden, the forgotten, the protestors. They have left their marks on objects, just as the official view has, but you just need to know where to look...

This special curator-led tour before the Museum opens to the public is exclusive to Members. This is an intimate and in-depth look at the exhibition presented by the exhibition curators.

Please note that only a small number of tickets will be available on this tour to ensure that Members have the best experience when visiting. Please meet 10 minutes before the start time at the Information Desk in the Great Court.

Age: 16+
