Today our Year 6 Wallace Collection Young Curators were privileged to be involved in the shortlisting for the Family Friendly Museum Awards. They were presented with copies of all nominations and then worked in groups comprising of museum staff, volunteers, young trustees, consultation groups representatives and families to whittle down the entries using the Kids In Museums manifesto to decide how family friendly the nominated museums are.

“It helped my understanding of what people had written about how they are making their museums child friendly.” JD
“It made us quite confident as we got to choose which museums we thought were child friendly.” LS
“Overall, it was a great experience and we enjoyed a very nice lunch!” All
