Battle Drills and The Rifle Range
Over the school half-term, the National Army Museum is holding a World Wars event for children. It will take place between 10:30am-4:30pm from the 29th October to the 2nd November.
Admission is free, and the event is aimed at children 6-12 years old. They will be taught about how the First and Second World Wars changed our country, and experience a fun and interactive programme. The Kids will get to dress up in uniform and be set battle drills from a World War One Tommy; then they will get to have a go at the indoor rifle range with instruction from the Second World War Home Guard.
If you want to make a full day of it you can then visit the World Wars gallery, where there is an Action Zone for kids. One of the exhibitions is called 'The World's Army, 1914-45', which explores how the lives of people from around the world were affected by the First and Second World Wars. It also shows the great advances made during that period.
For younger children, you can book a session in the Kids' Zone; it is an area dedicated to soft-play, arts and crafts, and dressing up.
