Are you a young explorer who loves history and archaeology? 

Join our Young Archaeologist Club, which we call ‘Rusty Club’ after our mascot ‘Rusty the Iron Age Dog’.

The club meets for a fun, interesting and active session usually on the first Saturday morning of each month, either at the museum or for occasional trips out to historical locations in the local area. 

The sessions at the museum start at 10.30 and finish around 12, external visit times will vary.  

How much does it cost?

You can pay for 6 months of meets in advance for just £25. This means that there will always be a space reserved for you at those meetings. The subscription period covers from October to March or from April to September. You can pay on the day, at the front desk.

Past Meets

Rusty Club members have the chance to get involved in hands on crafts and educational games during our museum sessions. These are a few of the subjects that we have covered so far – Prehistoric Cave Art, Christmas Traditions, Roman Foods, Forensic Archaeology, Mummification, Mapping, Wassailing, Bronze Age Pottery, amongst many others!

We have also made external visits to the Banwell Bone Caves, Worlebury Hill Fort and Uphill Church, accompanied by experts in history and archaeology, including our County Archaeologist, Cat Lodge and Conservation Officer, Kate Hudson-McAulay and Time Team’s Phil Harding.
