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

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

Participants will have the chance to explore the collection behind the scenes at Ely Museum, learn how 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 2024-2025 academic year, then please download and complete the application and parental consent form and return them either by email to learning@elymuseum.org.uk  or by bringing them directly to the museum to our Learning and Engagement officer.

The deadline for a September start is the 31st August 2024. Our team will be in contact with you to confirm your acceptance to the club prior to the first session.

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

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.
