About Amaze Me

Amaze me

Amaze Me is a series of high quality online learning resources that uses the collections of the West Midlands Hub Museums and other museums in the region.

 

Four resources have been created from the following collections: Art, Local History, the Romans in the West Midlands and Science & Technology. Further resources will be added in the future to include Natural Sciences and Archaeology in the West Midlands.

 

By featuring objects from the collections of Birmingham, Coventry, Ironbridge, Stoke-on-Trent and Wolverhampton museums, the website aims to increase access to and knowledge of the regional museum collections. We also want to encourage people to visit museums and art galleries in the West Midlands.

 

The target audience for this website was defined as lifelong learners, students, and people who are physically unable to visit our museums. Amaze Me is not intended for use by researchers or experts.

 

We wanted to create a website that made it fun to learn and that introduced people to subject areas. We hope that it will encourage people to find out more.
