This youth board we joined the visitor team in the Climate Control exhibition. The gallery was quite quiet at the time because it was around lunchtime, but this gave us time to really get to grips with the exhibition and look at the messages behind it. We enjoyed the experience of helping out and watching people react to the ideas presented, especially when a little girl sat down and started asking the polar bear questions!
Another interesting thing was reading some of the pledges visitors were putting up and watching them voting in the interactive space, because we got to see how the exhibition was affecting their views of climate change and how involved with the issue they felt. We also found that visitors were really enjoying the portable handling table, although it got moved when the exhibition was quieter. This was a new addition to the museum and felt like an important part of the climate control gallery. Being part of the team in the exhibition was interesting because it allowed us to experience a different side of the museum and get more involved with the museum visitors.
