WELSH MUSEUMS SHARING HISTORY, CULTURE AND SCIENCE ONLINE TO SUPPORT LOCKDOWN HALF TERM

WELSH MUSEUMS SHARING HISTORY, CULTURE AND SCIENCE ONLINE TO SUPPORT LOCKDOWN HALF TERM

Over the October half term across Wales, our museums will be going that extra mile and offering a range of exciting, explosive and engaging activities, events and resources designed to beat lockdown boredom and blues. As all museums across the Nation close their doors in compliance with Wales’ Coronavirus ‘firebreak’ lockdown, their teams are busy preparing to share activities, workshops and events planned for half term as part of Welsh Museums Festival, online.

Speaking about the Festival, today Welsh Government Deputy Minister for Culture, Sport and Tourism, Lord Elis-Thomas, said “I’m proud of the resilience, commitment and enthusiasm our museums are showing as they work to ensure their collections and knowledge can be shared though their doors are closed during this challenging time. This half term in lockdown will be particularly difficult for families and lonely for many. As we have seen throughout this pandemic, culture is a vital tool in maintaining wellbeing, so I’m delighted our museums are doing their best to provide online resources and activities to entertain and educate during Welsh Museums Festival week.”
