Image for Play, museums and cultural organisations – new info sheet

Our new information sheet aims to support museums, galleries and cultural organisations working with children and families to broaden their understanding of play. Play, museums and cultural organisations offers ideas to incorporate play into the cultural sector’s day-to-day work and service provision. 

It explores: 

  • Why play is important for children, families and cultural organisations 
  • Practical ways to plan for play
  • Ways to accommodate playful behaviour in cultural settings, using examples and ideas from museums that have improved their provision for play.


This information sheet has been written by Charlotte Derry, an independent play and museum consultant working in schools and the cultural sector.
