People’s History Museum will close on Sunday 31 December 2023 and re-open on Thursday 1 February 2024 so that it can carry out further work as part of the Welcome Project at PHM, which stems from the museum’s vision to be an exemplar for accessibility.Find out more
The traditional call for Bingo might be ‘house’, but this fun, Family Friendly version of the game is all about exploring a ‘museum’.
Instead of numbers being called out, the quest is to find different images featured in banners found throughout the museum’s two main galleries and the 2023 Banner Exhibition.
There are 25 banners in the exhibition, situated amongst the displays in the main galleries that tell the stories of those in the past and present who have fought for rights and representation. The banners themselves with their bright colours and strong designs aren’t hard to spot, but it will take the eagle-eyed to identify the different Banner Bingo images; the world, a handshake, a megaphone and a moon are just some of the features to find. Complete a line and shout out ‘bingo’, fill the complete card and declare ‘house’.
Collect your Banner Bingo card from the Info Desk, and after your search get a small prize for taking part. There are two versions depending on the challenge you are looking for, with younger visitors also in mind.
Family Friendly activity, suitable for 5+
