Manifesto

How Age Friendly Are You?

Welcome
Is your museum age friendly? Does it encourage engagement and participation from all ages?

Keep it simple
Simple often works best, costs less and is more sustainable.

Access
How easily can older people access your museum and its collections, on and offsite?

Be creative
How can your work encourage new experiences, learning and creative thought?

Be positive
How might your work celebrate ageing and/or challenge negative perceptions of ageing?

Value
How do you draw upon older people’s wide range of knowledge, skills and experience in your work? How does your museum find out about older people’s needs?

Collaborate
There is real value in working with partners outside the museum sector – who might your museum work with locally?

Develop
What skills does your museum need and how can these be developed?
