Ely Museum’s Young Curators Club is for young people in school years 8 through 11.

Meeting monthly at the museum after school, the group works together in collaboration with the staff at Ely Museum to help shape museum activities.

Participants have the chance to explore the collection behind the scenes at Ely Museum, learn more about the way museums operate and discover more about our local history.

Young Curators is a fun, inclusive place to meet new people and learn new things.  It is also a great way to develop your skills and add something interesting to your CV and university or college applications.

If you would like to join us for the 2023-2024 academic year, then please download and complete the application & the parental consent form and return them to Janine, our Learning and Engagement Officer, by email or by bringing them to the museum.

If you have any questions, please email Janine on learning@elymuseum.org.uk

The dates of the upcoming Young Curator sessions are:

Oct 12th

Nov 23rd

Dec 7th

Jan 25th


What do you need to do?

We’re really pleased you would like to join us as a Young Curator!

Space within the Young Curators Club is limited, so we may not be able to accept all applicants.

We are still accepting applicants for the 2023-24 academic year, although depending on when you apply we might suggest that you start the following term to join a project at its start.
