In the West Midlands we have two fantastic mobile museums. The museums are based on large vehicles (similar in size to mobile libraries). Each Museum on the Move vehicle contains an interactive and family friendly museum exhibition. The current exhibitions are: Luxuries and Essentials all about our need to shop, and Just Art exploring art through objects, images and hands on activities.
The exhibitions are totally mobile and travel to all sorts of venues, events and places. Museum on Move offers the opportunity for everyone to experience museum exhibitions and collections in their own communities.
The Museum on the Move project has received funding from Birmingham Museums Trust through the Arts Council Major Grant Programme. The project is managed by the Marches Network.
