Half term at Notts Military Museum

Wednesday, 21st February 2018 : 10.30am to 4.30pm


Nottinghamshire's action-packed Military Museum will open its doors early again this year - for the spring half-term holiday. The decision to open for three days from February 21 to February 23 follows the success of pilot schemes in 2016 and 2017. "As the Museum caters so well for families and is free to enter, we wanted to be open at half term along with other attractions in the Thoresby Courtyard where the Museum is located," says Curator Captain Mick Holtby. Activity areas for youngsters are continually updated with new information and quizzes. Dressing up in historic military uniforms and learning about the weapons used in key campaigns gives young visitors a unique insight into famous battles of the past as well as the techniques of modern warfare. There is plenty for their parents and grandparents to enjoy too, including the Call to Arms exhibition featuring a realistic reconstruction of a First World War trench, with visual and sound effects, depicting what it was like to live in such cramped conditions under enemy fire. The museum re-opens fully for the 2018 season on 1st March.

Event Location: Notts Military Museum, Thoresby
