The National Maritime Museum aims to create a Museum which is accessible, welcoming, and relevant for local young people, and to be a place for enjoyment and inspiration for our young audiences.

The Museums club is part of the UK-wide National Saturday Club initiative.

The sessions will last 3 hours and will take place on a weekly basis during term-time.
