What museums can learn from children

From consultation visits to American children’s museums, to designing an interactive gallery space with children, through a training course with Playful Partners and Kids in Museums, culminating in zestful play delivery with the Royal Academy of Arts in 2021, we have been exploring just how much children have to offer the world of galleries and museums. PennyWilson and Lily McGuire will share the stories of their experiences of children enriching and transforming the use and content of museum spaces and the people who work in them.
