Pop-Up Museum – Sharing of Memories

The second phase of the Pop up Museum pilot, Sharing of Memories, follows the success of the 1st Pop up Museum during the Summer of 2017.

The second phase the Pop-up Museums pilot followed the first successful pilot, Treasures of Anglesey, which focused on events but didn’t reach the audience as expected.

To enable the Pop-up Museum to engage with the necessary groups and people, a phase 2 pilot was commissioned and open sessions were held at Oriel Môn in Llangefni, workshops with children in four primary schools and at Llangefni Archives and visits to three homes residential.
