Museum of Kindness

Welcome to the Museum of Kindness – made entirely from contributions by Tees Valley pupils, with a little help from some local writers we’ve been working with. Museums usually collect physical things. Sometimes though, there are important things to collect that you can’t hold or put in a case or on a wall. These moments, these feelings, these stories sometimes get lost in history because they’re not easy to collect, keep and display. This Museum is filled with thoughtful entries from pupils of all ages. We’ve been so overwhelmed by the sheer number of stories of kindness we’ve received that we’ve opened a second gallery for our museum. We hope you enjoy visiting it as much as we have. Don’t forget to visit both galleries!

If you’ve helped make this Museum and are looking for your own moment of kindness, just use search to find your name. If it’s not there check in our second gallery: More Museum of Kindness and keep checking which you can find here – we’re still uploading entries. We also have recently created  Museum of Kindness – Staff Edition to mark World Kindness Day, why not check it out here?

This exhibition has been curated by Tees Valley Museums,

Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, MIMA, part of Teesside University

and Cleveland Ironstone Mining Museum
