Takeover Day 2014

Takeover Day is an annual day on which museums, galleries and historic homes invite children and young people in and give them a meaningful role. Children are in charge, making decisions and participating fully in the life of the museum. Young people have a say and contribute to the work of the museum. All of which is supported by Kids in Museums. To find out more about Kids in Museums or Takeover day visit their website http://kidsinmuseums.org.uk/takeoverday/

This year our Takeover Day took place at Lowewood Museum. 11 students from The Broxbourne School came in and took over our roles in the education, marketing and exhibition teams. They created an exhibition, produced marketing material to promote their day and developed and led school and public activity sessions.

Here are some photos and quotes from the day – everyone had a fantastic time!
