Show Me - is specially for kids - is free and safe - and has news, games, make and do activities and more from the UK museum sector.

Logo which reads Culture24.

Show Me is the junior version of Culture24 - the government funded news, features and what's on website about UK museums, galleries, archives, science centres and heritage sites.

Based in Brighton, Culture24 is funded by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport through MLA and the Department for Children, Schools and Families.

Staff at the site work with museums round the UK as well as volunteer writers to produce safe, accessible and interesting content about Britain's brilliant museums and galleries.

Show Me owes its existence to a range of institutions and organisations, detailed below. We're very grateful for all of their support.

The Paul Hamlyn Foundation has given very generous support to the development of Show Me and our Kids Club network which is currently under development.

The Foundation's primary concern is to address issues of inequality and disadvantage, particularly in relation to young people. Support concentrates on projects in the UK which respond to these challenges through the arts and education.

The initial research, vanilla launch and testing stages of the development of Show Me were funded by The Clore Duffield Foundation.
