Cllr Andrew Lewis, cabinet member for culture said: "I am delighted that this significant and important milestone in the reign of Queen Elizabeth II is being celebrated by the children of Gloucester and that both they and the museum have had the privilege of working together to co-curate this special event.

"This collaboration will allow schoolchildren and their families, alongside many other audiences in the city and beyond, to visit and see their own artwork on display in the most respected exhibition space in the city."

This event has been co-curated with the support of Kate Hazell from the Gloucester Schools Partnership.

The exhibition is free, but donations are happily accepted to keep bringing more incredible projects like this to the museum. Booking museum admission tickets is also recommended to avoid disappointment...
