Why not treat your Dad with a free visit to the museum? On this special day, dads accompanied by children, will have free entry to the museum. Our guides will be on hand to take you on a trench tour and we will have the museum’s ‘handling collection’ on display.

As it’s the anniversary (to the day) of the Battle of Waterloo (Sunday 18th June 1815), one of the British Army’s greatest ever victories, we may have a Napoleonic soldier on site too, displaying kit and weaponry of the period.

This is also the projected opening date for the museum’s newest attraction, ‘Project Blitz 1940’ and in support of that, we are hoping to welcome home our sponsored cyclists, who have ridden from Coventry, in support of the project. Please come along and show your appreciation.
