Museums and older people

Care staff and volunteer training sessions

We take objects from the museum collections so that they can be enjoyed by everyone. In particular, we work with communities who may find it difficult to visit our museum venues.

Care staff and volunteer training sessions.

Want to know more about using museum resources?

Join us for one of these friendly training sessions. These are held throughout the year and offer an opportunity for care and support workers to see behind the scenes of our museum stores, get hints and tips on reminiscence and find out how to use museum objects effectively with groups. You’ll also have a chance to learn about, and explore, the themed Open Museum handling kits which can be borrowed by groups based in Glasgow.
