Lighting and furniture…

Lighting installation

Electricians are hard at work installing lighting into the cases. This is the first part of the work required to compete the lighting fit out for the gallery. After this is finished they will then move onto new track lighting for the room which will make it light enough for our visitors to see, but not too bright for the collections.

Furniture and interactives

We had a really good meeting to discuss furniture and interactives and we now have a shopping list. This will include a comfy sofa, desk and chairs, bean bags and storage units for interactives. We have been concentrating on finding interactives that can be used in a very flexible way and encourage intergenerational learning for our family visitors (but don’t exclude the adults). This will include two different feedback walls, toys, and trails which encourage our visitors to really investigate the objects in the cases. We even discussed having a mystery object and inviting visitors to decide what it is and write creative labels for it.
