Come along on one of the museum’s special days, when we will have some of our hidden treasures on display. You’ll be able to handle weapons, as featured in movies such as ‘Zulu’, ‘Where Eagles Dare’ and ‘A Bridge too Far’ and try on uniforms too.

WWI personnel will be on hand to guide you around the full size trench system…Learn about a soldier’s existence on the Western Front. Watch out for snipers and be alert for sudden gas attacks – YOU may be the one who has to sound the alarm and keep your colleagues safe.
