About Kids in Museums
Kids in Museums is a national charity dedicated to ensuring that all children, young people and families feel welcomed and involved in museums and other heritage sites. Over 1,000 museums from all over the world have signed our Kids in Museums Manifesto which was created in collaboration with families, children and young people and hundreds of museums are involved in our regular programmes, such as Takeover Day and the Family Friendly Museum Award.
Over the past 18 months, we have worked hard to adapt our core programmes to support museums to involve families, children, and young people in their response to the pandemic. This included delivering over 30 free sold-out online training sessions, several Digital Takeover Days which reached millions of social media users, and the Family Friendly Museum Award From Home, which recognised digital activities created by museums.
We are now looking to the future and planning programmes to help museums recover from the pandemic and embed new ways of working with children, families, and young people.
