It was important to Glasgow Museums to communicate with our visitors, the local community and the general public about our plans for the new museum, giving everyone an opportunity to express their point of view on things like the design of the building, its location, and what to put in it.
This communication was through specific focus groups and the Glasgow Museums advisory panels. There were five advisory panels:
- Community Panel – Comprising frequent visitors to the old Museum of Transport, community organisations and locally elected representatives
- Education Panel – Comprising educational development specialists, teachers and college lecturers, covering pre-school to further education
- Access Panel – Represents people with disabilities and special needs, and covering a range of disabilities including sensory impairments, learning difficulties, and autistic spectrum disorders
- Teen Panel – Comprising local high school students aged 13 to 17
- Junior Panel – Comprising local primary school pupils aged seven to 12
