People’s History Museum (PHM) is planning some fun for families, with its brand new Banner Bingo activity. The traditional call for Bingo might be ‘house’, but this Family Friendly version of the game is all about exploring a ‘museum’. And instead of numbers being called out, the focus of the quest is the different images featured in banners found throughout the two main galleries and the new 2022 Banner Exhibition.
There are 26 banners in the exhibition, which are 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 skeleton, the peace sign and a lion are just some of the objects included. Complete a line and shout out ‘bingo’, fill the complete card and declare ‘house’.
Visitors can collect their Banner Bingo card from the Info Desk when they arrive from one of the Visitor Experience team and for everyone that takes part this is also where they can collect a small prize at the end. There are two versions depending on the challenge you are looking for, and with younger visitors also in mind.
