Elgin Museum Young Marvels
The Young Marvels is Elgin Museum’s under-18s youth group, named in honour of our local fossil Elginia Mirabilis (or Elgin Marvel). The group meets throughout the year for free and exclusive events – perfect for those who want to get a bit more hands-on with history, geology and archaeology and see behind the scenes at the Museum.
To become a Young Marvel, fill in a Young Marvels application form (432KB pdf) and return it to Elgin Museum – forms are also available in the Museum. As a member, you will receive a membership card, a newsletter twice a year, and access to exclusive events. You will also be first to hear about all of our events and activities for young people – download the Young Marvels 2019 Activities Programme (272KB pdf).
Once you are over 18, you can stay with us by becoming a full member of the Moray Society.
Since forming in 2015, the Young Marvels have participated in a variety of activities. From a medieval march through Elgin, to a siege of Elgin Castle, a Museum “takeover”, practising their excavating skills with mini-digs, creating lucky talismans, and exploring the science (and magic) behind love potions!
