The Ancient Lives Gallery in Maidstone Museum is open!
It was a challenge requiring creative dexterity to fit not one but two mighty civilisations into one confined space. We had a clear client brief to make it fun and had help from CUR8, the youth group who worked alongside the museum team, researching and devising some of the content for the gallery. The displays invite the visitor to ask questions and learn more about the modern scientific methods which have been used to unlock some of the ancient secrets held in the collection.
It has been shortlisted for the Museum + Heritage awards – we are keeping our fingers crossed.
