British Museum Wants to Rebuild Itself in Minecraft

By Gary Cutlack on at

The British Museum wants to bring itself to the sedentary gaming masses, by rebuilding the museum and all of its historical exhibits in the always-on world of Minecraft.

Although still in the early planning stages at the moment, the museum thinks there will be enough enthusiasm out there for the project to allow it to crowd-source its construction, with planners hoping members of the public will be up for recreating the buildings and all the looted artifacts it contains.
