Museum Explorer’s Club: Kings and Queens

With the Platinum Jubilee next month, we will look at some of the jubilees that have taken place through objects and documents from our more recent history collection.

Investigate unusual artefacts from Queen Victoria’s reign and from the 1950’s when Elizabeth II became queen. You will have the chance to create a design which will paint onto china to create your own commemorative plate. You can paint a Jubilee picture or something to celebrate an event in your own life.

Our Museum Explorer’s club is for 5-7 year olds and will be an introduction to popular topics such as the Romans and Ancient Egyptians. Take part in fun activities such as role play, art and craft, dressing in costume and exploring our galleries

4 year olds who have started school (or are being home educated) are welcome too.

There’s no annual fee, but pre-booking is essential to help us plan the sessions. Each session costs £6 per child, maximum number of children per session is 10. Parents are welcome to stay (no charge).

New members are always welcome

For more information, please contact Ali Rushent, our Learning and Outreach Officer.

Not 5 to 7? Then why not come along to our Young Curator’s club for 8-13 year olds (2nd Saturday of the month), or Curious Kids for 2 – 4 year olds (first Saturday of the month).

UPDATE: The May Young Curator’s and Museum Explorers will commence at 10.45am and not 10.30am as previously advertised. We apologise for any inconvenience. 7/5/22
