This February half term Bodmin Keep Army Museum is offering free admission from Tuesday 22nd to Saturday 26th February with different activities each day for all the family.
You can find out how archaeologists search for clues to our ancient past, explore First and Second World War objects with collectors and re-enactors, learn about a career in the Army and try virtual reality parachuting and tank driving experiences with the Army outreach team. You can see also see some of the historic weapons used in the First and Second World Wars, from rifles to Bren Guns and recreate wartime scenes captured during the Second World War by Bodmin photographer, George Ellis. There are even prizes to be won!
Jo Keenan, Learning and Participation Manager at Bodmin Keep, said: "We’re excited about our half term activities and delighted to be able to offer free entry for the week. Our activities are varied so that there’s something for everyone. As always, we’re incredibly grateful to the experts and volunteers who are joining us to share their knowledge and enthusiasm."
In addition to the holiday activities, all week visitors will be able to experience a unique sound installation exhibit which has come from the Imperial War Museum in London. Entitled ‘One Story, Many Voices’ it tells stories based on the Second World War and Holocaust from across the United Kingdom. The stories have been written by well-known writers from across the UK. Cornwall’s story has been written by Mercedes Kemp of Wildworks, and is narrated by Ed Rowe, Kernow King.
