Young people

The Museum is passionate about working with young people to help create the next generation of natural historians and scientists.

Join our Youth Forum

The Museum’s Youth Forum is a group of young people aged 14 to 19 who are involved in designing and setting up activities and events. They work with the public and create opportunities for other young people to engage with the Museum. Youth Forum members have the opportunity to meet experts behind the scenes and are involved in planning new developments, including exhibitions.

The group meets the first Saturday morning of each month from 10am to 12pm. For more information please email



Secondary school study days

Each year, the Museum hosts a number of study days for Key Stages 4 to 5 (and Christmas lectures for Key Stage 3). Here are the sessions we have planned for 2019. We'll update this page with more information closer to the event.
