Popping up at a museum near you

A Pop-Up Museum? We had one today! Read on to find out more...


We held a Pop-Up Museum today and it was really good fun and a great learning experience. Students from Granville Boys High School attended and each brought an object that was on the theme of "stories". 

In the video above Michelle talks about the Pop-Up Museum concept and you can find out more on the Pop-Up Museum's website. We'll also be adding further content to our website next week, so watch this space...

I'm so glad that the Pop-Up Museum was a positive experience for the Granville Boys School students.  I had a blast having conversations about their objects, and definitely learned a lot from them all.

Here's an email from Jan who arranged the boys' visit:

Dear Lynda & Michelle,

I would like to thank you so much for organising such a great day for the boys on Friday.  It was really special and I just love it when we can give them an experience like that.

I like the concept of a pop-up museum and I’m sure we can keep this going for a while. So thank you for the inspiration Michelle and thank you Lynda for the no-new-cookbook food and for the lovely day.
