Gallery Consultations and Behind the Scenes at a Museum

 

At the end of 2018 the main temporary exhibition space currently hosting the Great War exhibition will end and during early 2019 the process will start to return the gallery back to a permanent exhibition exploring our science and natural history collections.  The museum has a number of objects in storage including stuffed bird collections, taxidermy, butterflies, shells, insects, fossils and various other collections.  The gallery could explore topics such as extinction, climate change as well as the impact of human activity in relation to the environment.

 

During July the museum will be running a series of consultation events and we would welcome the involvement of schools in the process.  The education room will include various specimens brought down from storage for children to look at and pick their favourites for display and how the overall gallery should look.  There will also be a chance to trial some of the new potential activity sessions that would be introduced into the 4site education programme including sessions on fossils and dinosaurs and climate change.

 

The process would also include a pre visit to the school to introduce the project in May or June.

 

Schools wishing to explore participation in the consultations please contact Phil Treseder on the email below.  Participation in the project is free and will not be included in number of membership visits.
