Haverhill Arts Centre
This session is not part of the main SHARE calendar, and is being delivered as part of Saving The 70s, an HLF-funded two-year project which will enable 11 museums and heritage organisations to work with the local community to explore the impact of the 1970s. Priority will therefore be given to the project’s partner museums, but SHARE Museums East are pleased to be able to offer a limited number of places to the wider museum community.
This session will:
- Consider different ways of engaging visitors in museums
- Explore how visitors learn in museums
- Consider how to devise quality trails for families
- Share participants’ experiences in developing activities for visitors
Participants are asked to bring an object from their museum to the day (one per site is sufficient). This object can be one that you particularly like, one that is typical of the site’s collections, or it could be a mystery object for other participants to guess what it is!
Please also bring examples of any trails or activities that you have found to work successfully for children/families.
Activities will include:
- Exploring ways of bring objects to life for visitors
- Understanding how visitors learn in museums
- Comparing different examples of museums trails: what makes a successful trail?
- Investigating practical, fun items that you can use in your museums to help families explore your space
Please book via the form below.
Bookings are closed for this event.
