Nantwich Museum April 2020

Museum and Heritage sites from the North West will be joining to bring children and their families a day of online activities at their “Museums@Home 2020” event on Sunday 30 August.

The day is open to all and activities will be focussed on questions posed to experts from the Grosvenor Museum in Chester, The Silk Museum in Macclesfield and Nantwich Museum.

Questions should be submitted by Wednesday 12 August.

It will be possible to “Ask an Egyptian”, “Ask a Roman”, “Ask a Victorian”, “Ask a Tudor” or “Ask a soldier from the English Civil War”, or more than one if appropriate.

“Museums@Home 2020” is part of a wider initiative including schools and dialogues with teachers are actively being sought to identify requirements. The plan is to provide more online resources including opportunities to “handle objects” and have a look behind the scenes at local museums and heritage sites.
