Here's Donna Young, Curator of Herbarium at World Museum to talk about why we need you to tell us what you think of the museum...

"I always like browsing through the visitor comments on the World Museum Facebook page - it's great to hear that people have enjoyed the museum but it's also good to have feedback about improvements too. After all, World Museum belongs to the visitors - so it's only right that you all should have a say in what we have on display at the museum!  

Recent comments have included:

"Great Museum, been more than 6 times and going back again today with my 4 year old son to help him with his homework." - Carla Hassan

"A good mixture of exhibitions and shows on different elements of culture, history and science suitable for all the family" - Nicola Barnes

That's why I think it's great that World Museum is taking part in a UK-wide project funded by the Arts Council England to find out what visitors want to see in the galleries and displays at the museum. This study will help us learn more about what visitors like or dislike about our displays.

There's such a lot of variety at World Museum that I'm sure visitors will have a lot to comment on.

You can see everything from fish in the aquarium, to Ancient Egyptians, to the stars in the sky at the planetarium! Not to mention our hands-on interactive centres, covering both natural history and world cultures.

Researchers will be visiting the museum to interview visitors, as well as conducting a survey online.

I hope you'll be able to take a few minutes to complete this short survey - by filling it in you'll be in with a chance to win £50 of shopping vouchers of your choice. Those aged under 16 will require an adult's permission to enter the prize draw for shopping vouchers.

This survey is being conducted on the museum's behalf by independent researchers and all your responses will be completely anonymous. If you have any questions about the survey please email sarah@jenesysassociates.co.uk"
