Interactive visit
While museums first emerged in the 19th century, people have collected a range of different objects from a much earlier date. Ancient Greek temples housed valuable items that were on occasions displayed to the public. What lies behind this urge to collect things? What sort of objects are chosen to display to others? This Secondary School and Baccalaureate level visit will reflect on the meaning of museums.

What should our museums be like?

Workshop visit
Following the visit and using a creative approach, we will continue our investigation of the idea of why some objects are collected in museums rather than others. What do art collections contribute in the present day? In what ways are everyday items, consumer items, art, thrown away objects etc., different or similar?
