At Museums Northumberland we care for more than 25,000 objects across our four museums, celebrating 90 million years of Northumberland’s heritage.
Museums Northumberland is creating a new Community Advisory Panel that will be made up of diverse local voices and is open to all ages and backgrounds (no previous experience is required) giving the communities we serve the chance to shape our collections both now and in the future.
We’re proud to share Northumberland’s stories, and we want local people of all ages to have a say in how we tell them. We want our collections and exhibitions to remain relevant and continue to inspire, challenge and entertain our visitors.
Can you work with us to help ensure we reflect the communities that live and work in Northumberland? Can you help us present our shared history through our museum’s exhibitions and collections?
This project has been named ‘Femmer to Firmer’ – Femmer being the Northumbrian dialect for fragile. Help us create a stronger bond with local communities in Northumberland, and together, let’s shape the future of Museums Northumberland’s collections.
