Shrewsbury, 26th July 2017. Aliena’s report reflects the enthusiasm with which she thinks back to her great work placement. After several applications to different organizations in England, Aliena decided on a work placement with “Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery” in Shrewsbury, the picturesque native town of Charles Darwin. From the beginning Aliena had very good contact to her colleagues and was allowed to take over interesting and demanding tasks: She translated the museum’s guides, for example, answered questions on the exhibits asked by the visitors of the exhibition and even operated the virtual reality glasses in the Antarctica exhibition. In the last two weeks of her four-week work placement she engaged in an exciting marketing project and the question how as many visitors as possible can be at-tracted to the museum.
