How to Be a Family Friendly Museum




Tuesday 9 July

Would you like your museum to be more welcoming of children, young people and families, but need some support? 

This training day will provide a great opportunity to review where you are as an organisation and offer top tips and inspiration to develop your offer for this audience.

This day will help delegates to:

  • explore how your work fits into the local and national context 
  • use the Kids in Museums Manifesto as a framework to reflect on what your organisation offers and where you can develop your work 
  • pick up low and no cost tips for improving your provision 
  • hear from the People‚Äôs History Museum,  2017 Family Friendly Museum Award winner, about how they have embedded the Kids in Museums Manifesto and run Takeover Day 
  • discover how Takeover Day and Teen Digital Takeover can be used to pilot new work
  • find out about a range of resources to support your work 
  • create an action plan in order to take your work forward

You can view a full schedule for the day here.
