Makerspaces help to expand the definition of the word museum from a place for collections to be viewed and not touched to a place for exploration, discovery and hands-on experiences.

Museum maker programming can span from after-school and weekend sessions to summer camps and school field trip offerings.

Having children respond to a collection, using the objects as inspiration for their own tinkering and making, can encourage them to engage with the collection in greater depth.

Our pop-up mobile makerspace can bring maker activities to your education setting, museum, library or community space.


These resources were developed as part of our previous project on making, MakEY.
