Wakefield Museum Young Curators Club - in their own words

On Saturday 17 th January Wakefield Museums Young Curators Club met for their first session of 2015.

The group were asked to create a blog post on what they do at the club and why other children their age should visit the museum. Here is what they said:

Hello we are Oliver and Jack and we belong to the young curators based in Wakefield. We attend every third Saturday of each month.

We attend because it gives us something to do and a reason to get out of the house. At the young curators we do activities such as handling ancient objects and creating our own versions, as well as a lot more things that you could find out if you attend.

Above is an image in which we were looking around into the museum for ideas for this blog. We enjoyed dressing up and drawing the objects being displayed
Sessions are on the third Saturday of each month from 10:00 to 11:30 at Wakefield museum

If you are from 8-13 then you are free to join our club!
We are all creative in some way and we like arts and crafts.
It’ s about history and art
So get out of the house and get creative

Where do I start?
We come to Wakefield Museum every third Saturday. We look at old objects and make things about them. In the museum I like the wireless and the polecat.

At Young Curators Club we help children age 8-13 understand our history. I love this club because you have lots of fun and have even got to make food!
We make things and paint things, hold real artefacts and have fun!
