National Waterways Museum celebrates another intake of Young Curators

The National Waterways Museum at Ellesmere Port has celebrated another successful intake of Young Curators.

Young curators, Ellesmere Port

The Young Curators, who are school children from the local community, were selected for the positions after sending an application to the museum's Education Coordinator, Helen Evans.

The programme consisted of weekly after school sessions where the children shadowed working teams from the museum, and learnt skills in archiving, object handling and lock operation.

Helen commented, "this year's Young Curators have been excellent and have worked really hard to achieve their certificates. Our Young Curators programme is a great extra-curricular opportunity for local children to build their skills and confidence by working alongside our staff and volunteers"
