Pitt Rivers Museum needs your help!

Call out for Archaeology Focus Group 

The Museum is developing new displays of world archaeology and we would like to ensure these displays are informative and engaging for all ages. As part of our families evaluation, we are looking for adults to join a small focus group taking place at the Museum on:

Tuesday 15 March 2016, 17.00-19.00

We are interested in talking to local parents, guardians or teachers of children aged between 6-11 who are occasional or regular museum-goers.

The evening will be an informal discussion with an external evaluator (so you can be as open and honest as you wish)!

The session will discuss:

  • is world archaeology of interest to you and/or your children? 
  • is knowledge of world archaeology useful for your child at school? 
  • what do you think of existing Pitt Rivers displays and labels? 
  • what would make for an interesting archaeology family-friendly activity programme?

All comments will be anonymous and confidential, recorded for internal museum use only. There will be wine (hurrah!) and we are happy to reimburse travel expenses where appropriate.

If you are interested in taking part, or have any questions, please contact Helen Adams as soon as possible.

Thank you.
