Kids in Museums Carnival

29 April 2020 @ 11:00 - 16:00


Join Kids in Museums at our informal conference with a difference to explore how to improve your family offer.

The Kids in Museums Carnival is a celebration of the work going on across the UK to involve children, young people and families in heritage.

Through lightning talks, interactive workshops and playful activities, we will bring together a range of best practice approaches from the museums shortlisted for our Family Friendly Museum Award 2019. We’ll be offering practical advice and ideas on how to:

• reach out to non-visiting families
• overcome practical barriers for families, such as transport and the cost of a day out
• create more inclusive spaces for families
• meaningfully engage with young people
• make your spaces more welcoming for families
• run great family provision on a shoestring
• support young people’s mental health.

The Carnival is an opportunity to connect with the museum learning community, share challenges and discuss ideas in a friendly and positive environment.

Take a photo in our selfie booth, drop by our advice stall and try your hand at designing a party hat to celebrate 10 years of Takeover Day.

We will also share how to get involved in our Kids in Museums programmes throughout the year.

There are a limited number of free places available for staff who are in their first roles within a museum which will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Please email us for further details: [email protected].
