Camden Alive: Museum of the Imagination

We are delighted to welcome you to explore the Museum of the Imagination

Just before lockdown the brilliant year 4 students at Carlton Primary School constructed a new museum – the Museum of the Imagination. Collaborating with illustrators at Pencil & Help the students imagined a space where anything could happen! They imagined, drew, designed and worked together to make this fabulous book, which can also be experienced through augmented reality!

Download the PDF version of the museum below. You will then be guided to download an app on iPhone or Android so you can start exploring the augmented reality features. Enjoy! Let us know what you think by emailing

The Museum of the Imagination is brought to you by Camden Spark, working with Camden Council as part of Camden Alive.

The Museum of the Imagination embodies the aims of a Local Cultural Education Partnership - to bring together a range of partners to deliver a unique and high quality cultural learning experience for Camden’s young people.

To do this, Camden Spark collaborated with the Education team at House of Illustration, artist educators Pencil & Help, the wonderful staff and pupils from Carlton Primary School and Augmented Reality (AR) specialists Arcade to create this amazing print and augmented reality experience.

Through music, dance, fashion, design, performance and visual art the stories of our neighbourhoods will unfold.
