A gallery in Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery has been transformed into an animal-themed toddler-friendly space – the new Mini Museum.
The gallery has been designed to appeal to pre-school children, incorporating many of the paintings and exhibits that prove most popular with younger visitors to the museum, alongside comfortable soft seating areas and storytelling space.
The concept for the Mini Museum was devised by Andy Fowles, who worked closely with a number of local nurseries and pre-school settings to create a comfortable space for younger children to explore with their parents.
The Mini Museum incorporates a mini puppet theatre where children can create their own shows, and other interactive activities linked to exhibits elsewhere in the museum – including a three dimensional jigsaw of an Egyptian mummy’s sarcophagus and a computer game which includes a virtual tour of some of the other galleries.
