The Kids are Taking Over!
On 24th November 2018 we joined museums across the country for Kids in Museums Takeover day. We ran activities themed around different heritage careers, such are conservation and restoration of the house and care of the collections. The children and parents involved were really engaged and gave us great feedback.
On Takeover Day museums, galleries, historic homes and heritage sites invite young people in to take over jobs normally done by adults. It was established to help historic institutions empower young people and give them meaningful roles in their organisations. Since it began in 2010, 35,000 children and young people have taken part.
Turner’s House was delighted to take part in the 2018 Takeover Day.
