Curator Catherine Robins shows you how to be a museum curator and make your own museum window to share with your neighbours.

What you will need:

  • An idea for a topic and some objects
  • Paper
  • Pens
  • Tupperware or egg boxes (optional)

Health and Safety:

  • Non-toxic colouring pens should be used
  • Please remember that windowsills can get hot, so don't use anything flammable or that might melt as part of your display
  • Don't put anything valuable on view
  • If you are sharing photos of your Museum Window on social media, ensure that your address is not visible (ie avoid street signs and house numbers in your photos)
