Calling all inquisitive kids aged 7 -11! Our popular Curiosity Clubs are back for more adventure, discovery and fun.

Leave your grown-ups at the door and unleash your creativity with a repeat of our two most popular Curiosity Club themes – Ancient Egypt and Volcanoes. Capturing some of the museum’s most exciting collections, this is a chance for kids to explore the museum through games, activities and gallery visits.
