Do It

Make a Pop-Up Museum

Kevin Van Lierop

We’ve all got fascinating things, but not everyone gets to show them off in a museum. Thanks to the Pop Up Museum, that’s all about to change…

The Pop Up Museum is a temporary exhibit created by the people who show up to participate. It works by choosing a theme and venue and then inviting people to bring an object on-topic to share. Participants write a label for their object and leave it on display. A Pop Up Museum usually lasts a few hours on one day. Popping up in unorthodox arts spaces, like libraries or laundromats, Pop Up Museums focus on bringing people together in conversation through stories, art, and objects. They can happen anytime, anywhere, and with any community.

    I love this. I want to do this. I've curated storytelling shows- but I love the idea of making it interactive so that anyone can participate. Love how this has a tool guide!

      We're working on a few popup things here in London. Some might happen, others won't. For me I love the planning of them, the quick turn around, and the ability to make an impromptu impact in the lives of others.
