A Guide to Takeover Day

Welcome to our new Takeover Day film series offering support and advice to help you plan your own Takeover Day.

On this page you’ll find seven films that take you through all of the stages of planning your Takeover Day.

Takeover Day is when museums, galleries, historic homes, archives and heritage sites invite young people in to take over jobs normally done by adults.

In this first film Laura Bedford, Head of Programmes at Kids in Museums, explains what Takeover Day is, why you should get involved and what resources we have to help you.

After you’ve watched this introductory film, you can watch the remaining films below as a series or dip in and out according to your interests.

Each film is accompanied by links to the resources mentioned.

If our films have inspired you to participate in Takeover Day, the next step is to tell us about your plans and register your event.

If you’d like advice about any aspect of your Takeover Day or have further questions, please get in touch by emailing: takeoverday@kidsinmuseums.org.uk
