Youth Board

Manchester Museums Youth Board is an enthusiastic group of young people who volunteer at the museum. We meet at the museum at least once a month and are highly familiar with its collections and their importance. Over the past couple of years we have planned and delivered several events including a number of ‘Big Saturdays’, and we have contributed to gallery redevelopments.


It is a great opportunity to see what goes on behind the scenes, explore the many aspects of the museum while meeting new people and having fun!


There are two Youth Board groups:  the juniors: 8-13 and the seniors: 14-20. 

You can keep up with us via the Youth Board blog


From September 2014 we will have some more spaces available for Junior Youth Board members.  If you’re interested in getting involved and would like to know more / wish to apply please contact Victoria Grant  (juniors)


For further information on how to join senior youth board contact Andrea Winn (seniors)
