My Mini Museum Makers – Workshop for Families

21 August 2023, 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join us for a family-friendly workshop and get crafting your very own Mini Museum!

Mini Museums are back at the Museum of Cambridge for summer 2023!

Inspired by the creativity of nearly 3000 individuals in January and February 2023, we’re once again calling the residents of Cambridgeshire to celebrate the place they call home – in miniature!

Join a workshop during the summer holidays to create a brilliant mini-exhibition about what you love most about Cambridgeshire today: its people, places and stories. Be inspired by objects from the Museum’s collection while you tell your own story through your Mini Museum.

What: A hands-on workshop where you can make a miniature Museum about your favourite places in Cambridgeshire.

24th Juy 10 am and 2 pm
25th July 10 am
7th August 10 am and 2 pm
8th August 10 am
21st August 10 am and 2 pm

Where: The Museum of Cambridge.

Can you help us build an exhibition all about what you love in Cambridgeshire? 

This summer, you will be able to share your Mini Museum in a major exhibition at the Museum of Cambridge! Mini Museums will be on display as part of the exhibition from the 7th of August to the 31st of September 2023!  All those who have created a Mini Museum will be able to share it with us to make it part of the exhibition. For more details on how to share your mini museum with us visit: My Mini Museum & Your Exhibit To Go In It! – The Museum of Cambridge
