The History Detectives Club

For Kids who love Exploring and Discovering!

Maybe you like getting crafty, getting out and about, or maybe you would rather read our fun-fact-packed monthly History Detectives Case Files

This month it’s the totally revolutionary story of Science and Medicine


Designed with those aged 8-12 in mind, the club is actually suitable for anyone under 16.

Membership is free, and you don’t have to join to access the monthly Case Files. If you do want to join, there are a number of benefits – from discounts on events and activities, awesome members packs, with your own Time Travel Passport, members card, badge and access to our private members-only Facebook group.
