Curator for the Day

Fri 16th August 2024 10:00am

What does it take to curate a new museum display? In this interactive workshop, you’ll get the chance to go behind the scenes at Craven Museum and create your own exhibition for the day!

From archaeology to historic costume, there’s plenty to choose from. Our curators will help you to select objects from the museum collection, find them in our store our store, and create your own information labels. You’ll even get the chance to share your favourite objects with museum visitors in a pop-up exhibition.

This workshop is aimed at 8-16 year olds. Parents do not need to stay. Please bring a packed lunch.



Open door to Craven Museum store. Shelving can be seen in the background.
