Two Northern Museums To Pilot Sensational Museum Project

The Sensational Museum Project aims to rethink the role of senses in all aspects of museum work, from accession, cataloguing and collections, through to curating, exhibitions and the visitor experience. The £1m initiative is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and supported by a range of industry partners, including the Museums Association.

Ten museums in total will take part in a pilot programme to test new access tools in real museum and heritage settings. Two museums in our region are taking part:

Bradford District Museums and Galleries will be involved in the first of three strands of work, focusing on Collections.

Keswick Museum will be involved in the final strand that will bring Collections and Communication together.
