Community Curators Goes Digital

Every Museum Month, the London Children’s Museum invites visitors to exhibit their own collections. This popular program offers children an opportunity to:

  • Showcase their most treasured objects
  • Share their knowledge and expertise on a particular subject matter
  • Learn about what it means to be a museum curator

This year, we’re taking Community Curators online!

Intense Interests

Intense interests are an important part of children’s development! When a child becomes interested in a particular subject, they begin seeking out and absorbing as much information on this topic as possible. Whether on the hunt for fossils and minerals, or reciting facts about outer space, children are actually engaging in deep learning. Indulging these curiosities helps children develop language skills, increases their attention span, and improves cognition. Intense interests empower children to take charge of their own learning and explore the world in deeper ways. 

Exhibit Your Collection Online

Does your child cherish their collection of pinecones or buttons? Are they passionate about their hoard of dinosaur toys or trading cards? We would love to make them a Community Curator by exhibiting their collection on the London Children’s Museum website and social media channels.
