TAKEOVER DAY IN ENGLAND
Takeover Day Scotland 2013
28th November, 2013

On 28th November Scotland’s

museums were taken over!

Takeover Day Scotland is a celebration of children and young people’s contribution to museums, galleries and historic homes. It’s a day on which they are given meaningful roles, working alongside staff and volunteers to participate in the life of the museum.

This highly popular event has already seen thousands of children and young people in England and Wales taking charge with fantastic results. In November 2013 almost 30 venues and over 1,000 children took part across Scotland. They were directors, tour guides, conservators and more.
