MY Museum Children's Club (MC2)
MY Museum Children's Club (MC2) is a project designed by St Barbe Museum specifically to inspire children to be involved in the cultural shaping of our community. Using the museum as a platform, child-friendly - suitable for 6-11 years old - talks are hosted in the museum on the third Sunday of every month from 11.00am-12.00pm.
The topic of the talks and speakers are chosen for the variety of different themes they cover, for their charisma, and for the passion that distinguishes the presenters in their area of expertise. In combining all these elements, we hope to present new and inspiring role models, outside the family environment.
