A virtual Q n A with a museum collector

Let the Whitaker come to you – in miniature.

Our unique loan box is like no other! The Whitaker Museum will arrive at your school in a box to open up and explore, create and share. Create your own museum! What items will you display? Which stories will you share? How will you advertise you are open? Will you record it on film to share with the world?.

£40 for one hour.

Full instructions and resources included.

Plus a live Q & A video chat with one of our ‘collectors’ at a time to suit you.
