We run a range of Saturday morning clubs for children interested in history, archaeology and natural history. Regular sessions are held throughout the year on Saturdays, usually at the Museum, from 10.30 am - 12.00 pm (10.15 am - 11.10 am for Curious Kids).
There's no annual fee, but we do ask for pre-booking to help us plan the sessions. Each session costs £6 per child - so you can attend every month or just come to sessions that interest you!
New members are always welcome!

50 minutes of stories and multi-sensory fun for families with curious minds – for children ages 2 to 5.
Each session uses crafts, sounds and games to connect to an aspect of our collections. We often make something you can take home and we always have fun! Together we read a story to finish off the session. Dads, Mums and Grandparents enjoy joining in with the activities. An adult must stay for the session.
Sessions are held on the first Saturday of each month.
