At Hertford Museum we’re always trying to find new ways to encourage more visitors to the museum AND to improve things for our existing visitors.
As part of a project called Effective Museums our Learning Officer Eleanor has beeing working really hard on some new ideas for visiting families.
If you visit the museum today you might notice our new Discovery Station.
Visiting children can choose 2 or 3 things from the boxes- like a magnifying glass or some finger puppets or even a magic wand!- to take round the museum and the instruction sheet gives you ideas of how to use them.
There are also some books available in the galleries for you to read as a family if you have a chance.
But that’s only the start of our plans! At the moment we’re collecting questions from children to help us put together special fact files for some of our objects and there might be some more fun interactive areas appearing in the museum as well.
Keep watching this blog/facebook/twitter and visiting the museum and let us know what you think of our new ideas!
