The Museum Curator Workshop, AKA “Who Wants to be a Museum Curator?”, provides students with the opportunity to design and curate their own museum exhibition from a superb range of interactive 3D historical objects. Our co-ordinators have designed and created a webpage for students to browse, learn, and interact with the past (, allowing our volunteers to interact and embolden students via combined visual and audio learning.

This workshop was formulated during lockdown and has since been carried out at a number of our partner schools.
