Seminar postponed

The School Museums Seminar  advertised for Saturday 12 September has regrettably been postponed due to a lack of sufficient responses, until a date to be set. The seminar was intended  to bring together school museum enthusiasts to learn from each other about museum practice and to identify the issues and challenges  they face.

ANME intends to continue to contact its museum members to gain better information about their needs and priorities, most probably through an on-line survey.
