A new early years group has proved there is no such thing as being too young to enjoy museums.

Lynn Museum welcomed 42 pre-school children to its first Mini Museum Club on Tuesday.

Beth Kierman, museum learning assistant, said: “It was good, we were very busy. We wondered if the weather would put people off, but it didn’t.”

Accompanied by parents or carers, the young visitors took part in an hour-long session which had fairground theme.

Miss Kierman continued: “The activities in the morning included games with skittles and hoops and we had a story.

“They also made a hobby horse and a goldfish in a bag. We also had a warm-up with a song and a conclusion at the end.”

Lynn Museum will hold Mini Museum Club on the second Tuesday of every month.

The drop-in sessions, which were piloted last autumn, are aimed at children aged four and under, although older siblings are welcome to attend.

The next Mini Museum Club will be held on Tuesday, April 9 with a maritime theme.

Entrance fee is 50p per child and free for accompanying adults.
