Museum Explorer’s Club: Rock Detective

Investigate and identify rocks and fossils.

Find out about Wiltshire’s geology and the prehistoric creatures that lived here. Create plaster cast fossils and take part in other experiments and activities to discover more about rocks and fossils.

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).
