Amgueddfa Blog: Pop-up Museum Cardiff


Graham Davies, 30 July 2014

A partnership between the Cardiff Story MuseumAmgueddfa Cymru- National Museum Wales and the Heritage Lottery Fund is seeking to create a pop-up museum steered completely by members of the public who have something to say about Cardiff.

The themes, content and display will be decided by the public and will be created and displayed at the Wales Millennium Centre from the 9 to 12 October. Anyone in the locality will be able to come and either see or help put it together, and will also have the opportunity to put their own object or story on display!

Over the next two months we will be hosting a number of workshops for people to see how they can become involved, and to find out how a pop-up museum can actually work.

The workshops will be held at the Cardiff Story Museum on:

  • Saturday 30th August, 11am – 1pm
  • Thursday 11th September, 6pm – 8pm
  • Saturday 27th September, 11am – 1pm

We will be blogging and tweeting throughout the creation of the pop-up, so you can get involved wherever you may live and keep up to date with the progress and some of the stories being shared by Cardiffians and anyone with a Cardiff story to tell. #popupmuseum
