Virtual museums

9th January 2004 at 00:00
Show Me blows the dust from the UK's museums for teachers and 4 to 11-year-olds. Described as "a one-stop show for museum education resources", it has been created by the award-winning 24-Hour Museum with support from the Clore Foundation, and the accent is on learning and fun.

There are teaching resources for key stages 1 and 2 and games. Children can use interactive software, for example to take a trip on the London Underground or take part in a joust. There are currently only two items, Techniquest and the Big Pit Museum for Wales - so you can expect to see it grow, but it's a charming start.
