Museum Passport Project extended

2010-04-13 00:00

THE Witness Pietermaritzburg Museum Passport Project has been extended due to unprecedented demand and to ensure that all the participating ­pupils get the chance to visit the seven museums taking part in the scheme.

Pupils now have until April 30 to visit the Natal Museum in Jabu ­Ndlovu (Loop) Street, PMB Tourism, the Voortrekker/Msunduzi Museum in Langalibalele (Longmarket) Street, Macrorie House Museum in Jabu ­Ndlovu Street, the Tatham Art ­Gallery in Chief Albert Luthuli Street (Commercial Road), Comrades House in Connaught Road and The Old Prison in Burger Street.

Participating pupils each get a “museum passport”, which must be stamped by the museum when they ­visit. They can visit the participating venues either with their schools or individually, and should book a time to tour the museums ­before they arrive.

Please note — parents cannot come to the museums to get stamps for their children.

The school with the most stamped entries will win a photocopier sponsored by Nashua Maritzburg and two lucky pupils will also win notebook computers sponsored by The Witness.

There are also a host of other smaller prizes, including iPods, MP3 players, ­stationery packs and more to be won by both schools and pupils who complete the project.

The winners will be drawn shortly after the competition closes on April 30.

For more information about the project contact any one of the ­participating organisations.
