Three schools move into their local museums to test a new King’s College London model


Two primary schools and a nursery, from Tyne & Wear, Swansea and Liverpool, will have groups of pupils based full time at their local museum for up to a term as part of a King’s College London innovation project.

My primary school is at the museum is designed to test the hypothesis that there may be beneficial learning, social and cultural outcomes for primary school children and their families when they receive their full time education in a museum setting, as well as benefits for museums. The idea was conceived by architect Wendy James of Garbers & James, and developed in collaboration with the Department of Education & Professional Studies and the Cultural Institute at King’s.
