Join Mammoth Club

Become a member of our Mammoth Club to help protect Kids in Museums from extinction!

Kids in Museums wants all children, young people and families to experience the transformational power of museums. We celebrate and champion their voices and help to ensure that all museums offer them very best experiences when they visit.

We are fortunate to receive generous regular funding from Arts Council England and the Welsh Government, but we still need to raise an additional £50,000 every year to support our work with young people and museums across the UK.

Your support through a regular donation will help us to achieve our future ambitions to increase the number of children and young people participating in Takeover Day, enabling them to benefit from a magical behind-the-scenes experience, to expand the Family Friendly Museum Award and to encourage all UK museums to sign our Kids in Museums Manifesto and make a public commitment to being family friendly.

£25 per month – Steppe Mammoths

These were among the largest mammoths; their tusks could grow over 2m in length and were often elaborately curled. They are likely to have been around 4.5m tall and could weigh nearly 10 tonnes. You can see the remains of a Steppe Mammoth that was discovered at West Runton in Norfolk at the Collections Centre at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse.

Our Steppe Mammoths support our ambition to increase the number of children and young people involved with Takeover Day by funding the cost of a whole school class getting involved.

They will receive:

  • an invitation to one Kids in Museums event per year
  • an exclusive Mammoth Club pin badge featuring the Kids in Museums logo drawn by Sir Quentin Blake
  • all our latest news in a monthly newsletter
  • acknowledgement of their support on our website.

£10 per month – Woolly Mammoths

Woolly mammoths were one of the last mammoth species to become extinct and the last were still alive when the Pyramids were built. Woolly mammoths were 3m – 4m tall and covered in thick curly brown fur, even having fur inside their ears. There are several woolly mammoth skeletons on show in UK museums, including at Manchester Museum and National Museum Cardiff.

Our Woolly Mammoths help us to expand the reach of our Kids in Museums Manifesto by supporting free training for museum staff to implement it in their museum.

They will receive:

  • an exclusive Mammoth Club pin badge featuring the Kids in Museums logo drawn by Sir Quentin Blake
  • all our latest news in a monthly newsletter
  • acknowledgement of their support on our website.

£5 per month – Mini Mammoths

The smallest known species of mammoth, the ‘Mini Mammoth’ (Mammuthus Creticus) was identified by scientists from the Natural History Museum in 2012. They were just over 1m tall and roamed Crete around 3 million years ago.

Our Mini Mammoths help ensure that judging the Family Friendly Museum Award remains open and accessible to all. Their donation covers the costs of one family being Undercover Judges.

Our Mini Mammoths will receive:

  • access to all our latest news in a monthly newsletter
  • acknowledgement of their support on our website.
