It packs a huge punch in over 800 museums but is small enough to fit in your pocket. It’s the new Sir Quentin Blake illustrated Kids in Museums Manifesto – eight easy steps to help a museum welcome children and families published today (26 January 2017).

From Say ‘Hello!’ to never say ‘No’, from child-height stair rails to Tell your story and include their stories too, the Kids in Museums Mini Manifesto is a simple, easy to understand guide to what families and children want and need on a visit.

Kids in Museums listened to families and museums, who said they wanted a Mini Manifesto to work with alongside the 20-point Kids in Museums Manifesto. Small changes can have big impact. The Mini Manifesto empowers museums to make them, so families and children may benefit.

Over 800 museums, heritage sites and visitor attractions are signed up in support of the Kids in Museums Manifesto.

Kids in Museums is dedicated to making museums accessible to all children and families, in particular those who haven’t visited before.

Kids in Museums is celebrating the publication of the Kids in Museums Mini Manifesto at the Kids in Museums Carnival at Tate Moderns’ new Switch House today.
