Congratulations Team Dodo!


A year ago we came up with a crazy idea. We would take our famous Dodo out on the road, from Land’s End to John O’Groats, calling in at 24 different museums and galleries along the way… and we would get all this up and running just 3 weeks after the initial spark of inspiration. We called it the Dodo Roadshow and an incredible journey across the country began.

The Dodo’s adventure begins…

Last night, team Dodo Roadshow was given a hearty pat on the back at the Museums + Heritage Awards for Excellence 2016, walking away with not one, but two awards! We were delighted to be awarded the prize for ‘Project on a Limited Budget’, but there was an extra surprise at the end of the night when the Museum scooped up the top accolade ‘Best of the Best’!

On awarding the accolade for the Project on a Limited Budget, comedian Marcus Brigstocke described the Roadshow as:

A clever, fun and engaging idea, completed in a very short period of time, which celebrated new conversations and partnerships across the country.

If you missed the adventures last summer, why not explore all of the places, people and museum objects that the Dodo visited along the way.
