Museum Club
Museum Club meets 3 times per term from 10.30 – 12.30 on a Saturday, usually at Norwich Castle. Each session we creatively explore a different museum topic. Club activities are designed to be varied to suit different interests and areas of knowledge, while relating to (and utilising) the museum’s temporary or permanent displays and exhibitions. For example, past sessions have included Roman cookery, Tudor music and crime and punishment in the past. Sessions are quite informal, giving club members the opportunity to socialise with other young people from a variety of backgrounds whilst taking part in fun educational activities which build upon their academic and creative curiosity.
