Creating family friendly exhibitions


Wednesday 3 July, 10am-12.30pm


Do you want to create a family friendly exhibition in your museum, but aren’t sure where to start?


About this training


During this session, we will be exploring the process of developing and delivering a family exhibition with practical tips and ideas.


This training webinar will be led by Sarah Shaw, former National Family Interpretation Manager for English Heritage. Her work included collaboratively designing family friendly experiences with families at the UNESCO World Heritage Site Birdoswald Roman Fort, which won the Best Family Day Out UK Heritage Award in 2020. She was also the project manager for the Marvellous and Mischievous: Literature’s Young Rebels exhibition at York Art Gallery in 2023.


The session will help delegates to:


  • discuss how to plan for families in exhibitions
  • find out how to use learning and play styles for interpretation and resources
  • learn top tips for developing family friendly exhibitions
  • think about how you consult with families to develop your provision
  • hear ideas for wider improvements to your family visitor experience.


Take a look at the full schedule.


This training event will be delivered virtually over one half-day session (two hours and 30 minutes with a short break). 


Who should attend?

This training is aimed at staff who work in museums, art galleries and heritage sites who are interested in developing successful family friendly exhibitions.
