Gallery Challenge

The museum store room in Gallery Challenge.

Ever wanted to run your own Museum? Gallery Challenge lets you choose your own objects from the Whipple's collection, design your own case and research and write your own Museum labels! You can also find out more about doing it in real life with our Museum careers information.

Gallery Challenge is an engaging interactive online activity in which anyone can create their own museum gallery. You can explore and research real objects from the Whipple Museum's collection and then use that information to write your own labels and design your own display. The activity is also designed for use by schools and is supported by worksheets and lesson notes, and by follow-up information about museums and higher education.

As well as the activity itself, the website is full of information about what it is like to work in a Museum. There are job descriptions and interviews with real staff alongside other careers resources.
