Description:

The museum staff have all caught the dreaded lurgy and need help to open the museum for the day! The Take-over Teams will explore the museum and try out the jobs our staff do, including: staffing the reception and welcoming visitors, acting as gallery guides or security guards, cleaning the displays, being artists in residence, creating displays and sorting objects.

Main learning outcomes:

Students will find out about the jobs people do to make a museum a special place in their neighbourhood.

Main learning approach:

Active learning
Play
Thinking critically

Planning a visit:

Workshop lengths vary and can be adapted to suit the ages and needs of the group – with prices varying accordingly.

A room for lunch is provided when booking sessions led by the museum staff.
