Toolkit for Working with Young People in Museums
by National Museums Scotland
A Toolkit for Working with Young People in Museums which draws on their experience of a two-year national project, Scotland Creates: A Sense of Place, led by the National Museum of Scotland and generously supported by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and Creative Scotland. This project shows how museums can provide young adults with positive personal, cultural and learning experiences, develop their creativity and improve their life skills.
