JAN Trust Explores London…

It was a slightly chilly Halloween morning as the ladies along with their young children climbed into a bright green coach that looked perfectly placed amongst the leafy backdrop that makes up Alexandra Palace gardens.

Many of us have memories of walking around a museum in our stuffy school uniform while looking absent-mindly at objects which we see as having no significance on our day-to-day life. The Museum of London could not be further from this image.  It was a highly interactive museum where running into a touch screen display at almost every turn was commonplace. Seeing people – young and old – actively engaging with the content, not only through sight but through hearing and touch, was a great experience for us all.

As we traced back the history of London right up to the cosmopolitan city it is today we were reminded that the diversity which is found in London is what makes London truly unique.  JAN Trust embodies this. The users of JAN Trust are part and parcel of what makes this city great. As one display read – ‘One London many Londoners’.
