UK museums try to attract younger audience

Galleries hold special events to boost attendance among young adults, who are often absent among museum-goers.

    More than 35,000 exhibition spaces around the world are celebrating International Museum Day.

    Special events are being held to try to attract people who would not normally visit.

    Young adults are often noticeably absent among the museum-going population, and museums try hard to get them through their doors.
