Minecraft at RAMM
Explore historic Exeter with Microsoft’s Minecraft.
Discover what life was like in Roman, Tudor and 18th century Exeter with Minecraft. RAMM staff identified significant times in the city’s history and worked with well known Minecraft creators to give a great gaming experience.
You can even get inside a museum object. 18th Century Exeter is based on the Hedgeland model in the Making History gallery and includes the object’s case. The Hogenburg map of Exeter lets you see Exeter as Tudor map makers did. The two versions of Roman Exeter are based on the city’s rich archaeological record.
These worlds are in Java edition only for now. New bedrock versions due in 2021.
