An Inflatable Museum Will Bring Exhibits to Disadvantaged Schools in England

People can't get to the museum, so the museum is coming to them

An inflatable bed is cool, but it's nothing compared to an entire inflatable museum. The Manchester Museum, the University of Manchester's archaeology, anthropology and natural history, is inaccessible to people who live in certain parts of the borough due to limited transportation options—so the museum is coming to them, via this inflatable version that can travel around by van. "It will allow the museum to meet the demand for our oversubscribed schools programme in a fun and accessible way," the museum's director said.
