This is an Amersham Museum run after-school group for 14-18 year olds. The group provides opportunities for young people to work with museum professionals to develop their skills and understanding of museum curation. This includes:

  • Developing and caring for a museum collection
  • Curating and designing exhibitions
  • Developing learning resources
  • Evaluation techniques

Young Curators meets once a fortnight on a Monday afternoon during term time, 4.30pm-5.30pm

Participating in the Young Curators programme can be counted as volunteer time, which can be used as part of the requirement for a Baccalaureate programme or for the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. If extra hours are needed to fulfil the commitments of these schemes, participants can be given additional work to do between the sessions.

Joining Young Curators

To join Young Curators fill in the registration form below. The form must be completed by a parent or guardian for those aged 14-17 and by the participant if aged 18.

“Enjoyed our visit to this wonderful interactive museum where you are positively encouraged to touch things!”

“Visited Amersham museum yesterday – lovely place, provides many details on the history of the place. Plenty of cute cafes, pubs and shops around also… not difficult to find free parking nearby. ”

“A well-run, informative and interesting small museum on the main street. It’s mostly volunteer-run and they do a great job in keeping it and making you feel welcome…Check out the herb garden too.”

“Enjoyable film and television location guided walk around Amersham hosted by Amersham Museum – here are the Sun Houses on Highover Park and further up the hill is High & Over.”
