Open 7 days a week. Mon-Sat 10-5, Sun 11-3

Young Curator’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 Young Curator’s club (previously Young WANHS) is for 8-13 year olds and will take place, as before, on the second Saturday of each month. Sessions are focussed around our collections and exhibitions, and subjects we look at include archaeology, history, natural history and art. Take part in practical activities such as archaeological recording, experiments, art, and walks to local archaeological sites. There are also opportunities to visit or take part in local archaeological digs taking place.

There’s no annual fee, but pre-booking is essential (maximum 12 children per session) to help us plan. Each session costs £6 per child.

New members are always welcome

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

Not yet 8? Then why not come along to our Museum Explorer’s club for 5-7 year olds (3rd Saturday of the month), or Curious Kids for 2 – 4 year olds (first Saturday of the month).
