Digital museum

Climate Museum UK may one day have a single base (an office, a store, a workshop space) but it’s not intended as a visitor attraction in one building. For now, it is mobile. The pop-up museum will be flexible, to visit wherever it is needed.

So, what is the digital museum?

  • When the museum pops up, responses of participants and new ideas for content will be generated. These will be shared digitally.
  • As collections are acquired or made, such as books, posters or games, they may be reviewed or illustrated.
  • We hope to signpost collections of climate art, science and campaign history so that ephemera, archives and artworks can be loaned for exhibitions by other museums.
  • Social media activity, such as creative campaigns. Check out the blogposts, the Twitter feed, and Facebook page. of course.
  • And, collections on Pinterest, Spotify and more. Read on to explore….
