Kids In Museums Takeover

IMG_9057At Littlehampton Museum I worked with a local primary school to organise a Takeover Day. I worked with a group of year 6 pupils to create new interpretation for their favourite objects in the museum.

The museum wanted to create more child friendly interpretation and new gallery trails for children and families visiting the museum. A Takeover Day event was the perfect opportunity to get young people to tell us what they found the most exciting in the galleries and talk about it in their own words, as well as giving them the chance to feel real ownership of their local community museum.

I coordinated the event, planned and delivered the session with the young people and edited, designed and produced the final outcomes, which included new display labels for objects, and a free trail to guide visitors around the museum, finding the children’s favourite objects.
