Takeover Days

Are you a young person who would like to takeover our museums? Do you work with young people who would like to find out more about museums?A boy uses tools to take apart a computer

We have regular museum takeover days throughout the year which encourage young people to get involved in the daily running of our sites.

Some of the tasks that young people have got involved in during our takeovers:

  • Taken over the job roles of some of the members of staff in our museum teams, to learn about what is involved in running a museum;
  • Created new museum exhibits to take over our collection cabinets;
  • Turned our museum floors in to play spaces;
  • Written their own playful interpretation (signs) for objects in our museum collections.

If you’re keen to be involved in the next takeover days, get in touch with Children and Young Person Officer, Heather:
