How can a painting or an object ignite young people's imagination? How can we inspire a love of learning through our nation's collections?

Take One

Take One...

Museums, galleries, archives and historic sites around the UK are now offering Take One programmes to make their collections accessible to young people for enquiry-based learning.

Each region has a champion – a museum that helps other institutions to set up their own Take One programme.

The principle of Take One is simple: to apply the model of the National Gallery Take One Picture programme within a local context. 

Get involved

Museums, galleries, archives and historic sites: read the Take One Museums Handbook then contact your regional champion.
