New science gallery in Birmingham

I’ve written an article for Museum [Insider] about the new gallery being built at Thinktank, the Birmingham Science Museum.

The museum was awarded £900,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund for a redevelopment of one of their existing galleries into a new, shiny, multimedia interpretive exhibition space. The plan is to get it open in time for the end of 2012, the year that every museum development project appears to be opening. (I wonder if there’ll be any work for suppliers to the heritage sector in 2013?!)

The piece about Thinktank is live on the M[I] site now.
