As part of Kids in Museums National Museum Takeover Day, Trimontium is delighted to put their museum in the hands of our younger volunteers for the day
This is the first time we have had kids taking over our museum but we have such a wonderful group of young volunteers, who are passionate about what they do, that we didn’t have to think twice about getting involved in this brilliant initiative.
Designed to make museums welcoming and engaging for all, Kids Takeover Day allows kids to bring the museum to life in their own style. And for any child visiting us on Saturday 18th November, entry is free of charge. We’ll have lots of extra activities, chosen by our young volunteers, focussing on play and crafts, with a distinctly Roman theme.
Takeover Day theme this year is Play so, at Trimontium Museum, learn about games Romans played, dress up, create artistic masterpieces or just explore our gallery, finding our lost legion or using our torches and magnifying glasses to bring history into focus. And for kids who find museums challenging environments, we also have SEND backpacks on hand to create a comfortable experience
Come along and support our young volunteers and see what they have in store for you and your family.
