A Kids in Museums initiative, Takeover Day is a celebration of children and young people’s contributions to museums, galleries, arts organisations, archives and heritage sites. It’s a day on which they are given meaningful roles, working alongside staff and volunteers to participate in the life of the museum. In 2016, Galway City Museum became the first museum in Ireland to take part, working with pupils from Salerno Secondary School in Salthill who took over the running of the museum for one day. Keep an eye on our website for details of Takeover Day 2017
