Young People

Our young people's programme focuses on working with older teenagers and young adults in a variety of ways.

Through our partnership projects and group visits  we work with youth organisations to use the museum collections and spaces to engage and inspire young people to explore, question, develop new skills and be creative.

Our partners include Creative Youth Network; Freedom Youth; Tomorrow’s People; Rising Arts Agency; Rife Mag; Young Bristol; Knowle West Media Centre; Learning Partnership West; Babbasa; Bristol Plays Music; Ujima FM

Our Youth Panel  – new for 2017 – is made up of 16-22 year olds from across the city. We meet regularly to explore the collections, contribute to museum decision making, plan and deliver exciting events for other young people. In June we hosted an under 25s event M Shed Unlocked, the first of many events we hope to put on with Young People at the centre of them. 

Follow what we do via our Facebook page and blogs

And for 8-16 year olds, we hold the Bristol and Bath Young Archaeologists’ Club – for behind the scenes tours, getting hands on with finds, investigating archaeological sites, trying out traditional crafts, taking part in fieldwork, and much more. For more information please contact
