My Primary School is at the Museum
My primary school is at the museum is a project which was developed by the Cultural Institute at King’s College London against a backdrop of threatened museum services, a shortage of school places, and ever growing evidence to support the range of benefits of learning in cultural environments and through collections. It tested the benefits of co-locating primary and nursery school classes for extended periods of time within a museum. The project began with an idea conceived by architect Wendy James: to one day see the creation of a permanent museum-school. Although the pilot study has now been completed, this blog is about bringing together practice from across the sector, and keeping momentum surrounding the project going.
