Museums of the Future

Doncaster Museum are hosting free, fun, family activities this February half term in Thorne and Mexborough.

Join us for creative hands-on workshops for children aged 7-11 and their families, to explore what museums are, what museums mean to you and what the ‘museums of the future’ will look like.

At the session you will:

Explore objects from Doncaster museum collections to explore local history

Use creative writing to create display labels for objects

Share something from home that could be displayed in a museum in 50 years to tell people what life is like today.

Create a display for Museums of the Future using a variety of craft materials

The workshops will take place:

Thorne Library, The Vermuyden Centre, Fieldside, Thorne, Doncaster, DN8 4BQ | Tuesday 14th February 2023 | 10 am – 12 noon | Book your free places

Mexborough Library, John Street, Mexborough S64 9HS | Thursday 16th February 2023 | 10 am – 12 noon | Book your free places

The ideas of the young people will be displayed in an online exhibition on the Danum Gallery, Library and Museum website. The feedback gathered will have a direct impact on the type of objects that Doncaster museums will collect and display in the future and the stories that they will tell.
