Viking Boat Regatta in Tralee Town Park!

Our History Club is an exciting opportunity for children 6 to 12 years of age to explore history and archaeology in a fun way. Using the Museum’s exhibitions and collections as the inspiration, the club members take part in a whole array of hands-on workshops facilitated by Helena Stackpoole and Education Officer Claudia Köhler. Past projects explored the Vikings in Kerry, St Brendan the Navigator, Antarctic explorer Tom Crean and Life in medieval Kerry. We meet every Wednesday afternoon during school term in our bright and cheerful Education Room.  Our annual membership is €25 per annum and this covers all arts and crafts materials. Inspired by Kerry secondary students participating in the Fridays for Future Climate Strikes, we aim to work with recycled and natural materials. To join the History Club please contact our Education Officer.
