Museum Explorer’s Club: Thomas Hardy’s Wessex

We will visit this interactive exhibition with an ‘I spy’ style trail to find out more about the Wessex landscape that is a key part of Hardy’s books.

Use the information and ideas you have found to create a textured collage using acrylic paints and collage materials (acrylic paints stain so don’t wear you best clothes!)

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).
