Kids in Museums Takeover Day Launched by Teenage History Club at Ancient House
On 24 May 2016, Teenage History Club, from Ancient House, swapped their gadgets & games for historical objects and a visit from ‘History Keepers’ author Damien Dibben (pictured below), as they took part in the national launch for Kids in Museums Takeover Day.
Teenage History Club gave Kids in Museums Trustee, Damien Dibben a tour of their highlights and favourite objects in the Ancient House, which was followed by a workshop to produce a trail aimed at young people visiting the museum.
In the afternoon, Damien stayed on to sign copies of his 'History Keepers' series of books and read excerpts to visitors.
Kids in Museums will now circulate the group's top ten tips for creating a teenage trail to museums nationally.
