The first Scottish winner of the Family Friendly Museum Award was announced today at a ceremony hosted by art dealer and broadcaster, Philip Mould, at the May Fair Hotel in London.
On 16 August, museums across the country handed over the control of their social media accounts to young people for the annual Kids in Museums Teen Digital Takeover. Ellen, a member of our Kids in Museums Youth Panel, shares a round-up of the day and her experience of taking part.
Our Family Friendly Museum Award celebrates museums, galleries and heritage attractions that go the extra mile to provide an excellent family friendly experience.
Takeover Day is when museums, galleries and heritage sites invite young people in to take over jobs normally done by adults. Discover how and why to join in.
At Kids in Museums, we believe museums are for everyone. But many families and young people who are D/deaf or hearing impaired might find visiting museums difficult.
We believe museums can play a role in supporting children and young people’s activism in response to the climate emergency. This guide, created in partnership with Climate Museum UK, Happy Museum Project and Julie's Bicycle, sets out ways your museum can support young people and take a stand on environmental issues.
