Did you know that Henry VIII enjoyed a kick-about with his mates, back when football was a game of ‘beastly fury and extreme violence’? Or that with a quick rummage around your kitchen cupboards, under the guidance of museum scientists, you’ll find all you need to make an erupting volcano? Did you know there’s a huge stuffed walrus with its own Twitter account living in a museum in London?

Show Me, set to become the ‘go to’ website for children and young people looking to discover and learn about the weird and wonderful world of museums, galleries and archives across the UK, will be launched on Monday, May 19th. The site showcases a fascinating range of stories, artworks, objects, games, films, apps and days out listings to inspire and ignite young imaginations.

Here is a sneak preview of what the site will look like.

Show Me is also a guide to the best family-friendly museums across the UK, featuring information on the latest events and exhibitions for family days out.

Show Me will be working in partnership with the Bafta-winning Culture Street team who specialise in making short films and interactives for and with children and young people. Culture Street brings a selection of the collection objects featured on Show Me to life in a brand new series of short films about collection objects chosen by children on museum visits. The children take viewers with them around the museum, asking curators the questions we’d all like to ask.

www.Show.Me.Uk  will feature:

  • Hundreds of museum games and learning resources
  • Zoomable, high quality pictures of collection objects from a range of museums
  • Culture Street’s films and interactives on key collection objects
  • ‘Make & Do’ guides – from volcanoes to Roman togas and wartime carrot fudge
  • Behind-the-scenes info and stories from the world of museums
  • What’s on guide – venue & listings info on family-friendly UK museums and galleries
  • Homework help for kids and supporting resources for teachers.

Show Me is edited by Anra Kennedy, Content and Partnership Director at Culture24 and a trustee of both campaigning charity Kids in Museums – www.kidsinmuseums.org.uk – and GEM, the Group for Education in Museums – www.gem.org.uk.

Here is a sneak preview of what the site will look like.
