Launch of the new Kids in Museums Manifesto 2012 at the Wallace Collection

The Kids in Museums Manifesto 2012 – 20 ways to make a museum family friendly was launched on Monday 16th January. Kids in Museums is a visitor-led charity working with museums to make them more family friendly.
 
Their 2012 Manifesto is compiled entirely from visitors’ comments. It gives a powerful voice to children, families and teenagers throughout Britain. Over 300 museums use it as a guide to becoming more family friendly, pledging their support.
 
The Manifesto was launched here at the Wallace Collection. Over the years, the Wallace has done amazing work with teenagers and children as young curators and guides, such as in 2010’s Shh…it’s a Secret exhibition.   ‘We are delighted to host the Kids in Museums Manifesto Launch 2012 because the Manifesto aims are central to what the Wallace Collection believes in – to open up great art to all generations,’ says Christoph Vogtherr, Director.
