It was on the news the other night their featuring a group of kids giving it a road test. Not too much footage, but you will be able to see a giraffe and spitfire when the doors open...
The kids looked like they were having a good time playing with the shiny new exhibits. It seems that there has been a greater emphasis placed on making it more accessible (entertaining) to kids.
What i don't want to get inside and see is something that is so over designed or over presented that the feeling of discovery and wonder is taken away. To me there should be room for questions and everything should not be spoonfed to you. Or rather the museum shoulds stimulate questioning.
The Kelvingrove almost felt like an adventure before. I worry that it will open its doors and give us something so over presented you almost cant see the exhibts. Something the temporary ehibitions at the likes of the Burrell arre guilty of.
Put it this way if you see kids running about pressing buttons on the interactive gizmos and not paying attention to whats really on show, they have failed. That said the kids on the news piece all named Sir Roger as the best thing there, so just maybe they have succeeded
Looking forward to it opeing.
