Museum 'take over' hailed a success

Idea was drawn from two UK campaigns

Students turned into teachers as they took over the Manx Museum on Friday (25 Nov).

Children from St Thomas' School were meeting and greeting visitors - including the His Excellency the Lieutenant Governor Richard Gozney - to take them on a tour through the building and talk about Manx history. 

'Take Over the Archives' day was organised by Manx National Heritage to get students to delve in and engage with Museum's exhibits.

They merged two campaigns in the UK, 'Take Over the Museum', and 'Explore Your Archives' to form their own initiative to educate students.
