We had a fantastic weekend over the May Bank Holiday at the Museum Store with over a hundred visitors of all ages, many of whom were first time visitors. Here are a selection of images to show what we got up to:
Family visitors investigating parts of the handling collection with a white glove session. Getting the gloves on was part of the fun! Post Office Savings Banks can be seen here.
Visitors creating Mini Curator Rosettes while GPO films play in the background. The Hi Vis jackets were part of the Mini Curator uniform for the day – the Mini Curators would then give their own talks and tours on objects they had learnt about.
BPMA Curator Chris Taft giving a tour. Note his Rosette; one of the biggest on the day!
On Sunday we made a selection of crafted items linked to our collections, with thanks to the East London Craft Guerrilla who designed and produced the packs for visitors to create.
