KCM’s History Club is an exciting opportunity for children 6 to 11 years of age to explore history and archaeology in a fun way. Using the Museum’s collection of objects as the inspiration, the club members take part in a whole array of hands-on workshops facilitated by Education Officer Claudia Köhler. As the sessions continue they choose areas of history they are interested in and develop their own projects. Past projects explored the Vikings in Kerry, St Brendan the Navigator and Antarctic explorer Tom Crean. We meet weekly in our bright and cheerful Activity Room from September until April and annual membership is available from as little as €10 per annum.
