The people behind Kids in Museums - who work with museums to help them welcome and include families, teenagers and children - have created a mini manefesto to help all museums do just that.
They've boiled down all their interviews and research into eigth key points:
- Reach out
- Get to know families
- Seek to reflect
- Be positive
- Make it easy and comfortable
- Be accessible
- Tell your story
- Communicate well
You can read the full mini manifesto in the attached PDF (you'll need to be logged in to see/download it). It's a handy little complement to their 20-point main manifesto.
Of course, we'd love to hear from you about the successful steps you've taken to ensure your museum is as welcoming and family-friendly as it can be. Please share in the comments below.
