Mersey and Dee YAC is open to everyone aged 8-16 years. At our club you will be able to come along and learn about different periods of history, visit and investigate local archaeological sites (and take part in excavations!) and historic places, try out traditional crafts, join in half term and summer clubs, and so much more!

We are based at the Museum of Liverpool on the iconic Liverpool Pier Head and, usually meet every other month and a few times through the school holidays; to get an idea about what we have to offer in our sessions, check out our 'What's On' page. To hear about our member's experiences, check out our blog. Our club is run by members of National Museums Liverpool's archaeology department, education department and, a team of dedicated YAC volunteers. If you'd like to know more about how we recruit our volunteers, please have a look at our FAQs.

Our membership costs £30 for the year and includes both our weekend (running from 10am to 11:30 am) and school holiday sessions (lasting all day).
