A recent addition to our Jurassic Coast Gallery is a large LEGO® model of a fierce Megalosaurus dinosaur. There are two LEGO®-based events, on 12th and 20th August, building a giant mosaic of a Megalosaurus out of LEGO® bricks. Aimed at children aged 5 – 10, spaces will be limited and every child will receive a brand new model made of LEGO® to put together at home. The cost is just £10 per child.
Young Archaeologists’ Club
The Young Archaeologists’ Club (YAC) is the only UK-wide club for young people interested in archaeology. The club is run by Council for British Archaeology (CBA), an educational charity working for over 65 years to promote ‘Archaeology for All’. YAC’s vision is for all young people to have opportunities to be inspired and excited by archaeology, and to empower them to help shape its future. A new Young Archaeologists’ Club (for ages 8 to 17) is being established at the Museum, running on the first Saturday of every month. 10.30am to 12.30pm. For ages 8 – 17. Book your place soon as numbers are limited.
- To find out more about the Young Archaeologists’ Club and LEGO® events and to reserve your place, please phone Dorset County Museum on 01305 756827.
