Do your kids love history? Bourne Hall Museum holds a club for all children 8-12 who have an interest in the past. It covers all periods, from the Stone Age to World War Two. Sessions are held every second Saturday of the month between 1pm-2.30pm During that time the kids will learn about history in interactive ways, such as making their own Stone Age tools and cave paintings, joining the Roman army, and solving murder mysteries.
The next session is on the 13th October. The children will join the Royal Navy under Lord Nelson, learn about the different duties of the men on board, and see the uniforms and weapons used at the time.
The session costs £4 per child.
Other fun events at the museum include World War 2 Day, which is on the 27th October between 11am-5pm. You will get to meet the Home Guard, their bomb disposal expert, air raid warden, and the army cook. There will be demonstrations and displays exhibiting medals and memorabilia. £4 for an adult, £2 for senior citizens, and under 12s go free.
On the 30th October, the Kids' Club will also be telling Tales of The Egyptian Underworld between 1.30pm-3pm. For £4, children will discover how the gods influenced the Ancient Egyptians, and act out the journey to the underworld.
