The Quizeum will feature expert contestants answering questions about artefacts in the museum, taking part in treasure hunts and engaging in debates.

Griff Rhys Jones is to bring a new cultural dimension to the quiz show format with a new brainteasing BBC series set in museums.

In what is thought to be a television first, the actor and comedian will host The Quizeum in museums around the UK, including the Ashmolean in Oxford and the National Maritime Museum in London.

For some rounds of the quiz, the BBC said that artefacts from the institution’s collections will be the subject of the questions and in others the competitors will explore the museum as part of a treasure hunt.
