History Week – WW1 and WW2! @ Weston Museum
Feb 16 @ 10:00 – 17:00
History Week - WW1 and WW2! @ Weston Museum | England | United Kingdom

Our ever popular History Week is back! From Monday to Friday, there will be different eras moving through time up to the Twentieth Century, with reenactors on some days or the chance to immerse yourself in historical living on others.

On Friday, you can learn about life in both the First and Second World Wars, see some of the weapons and hear about life on the home front.

The museum is free entry all year round. Friday’s WW1 and WW2 event in our lovely covered courtyard area is free to enter too and you don’t need to book on this day, but other events throughout the week need to be booked in advance and have a small charge.

Living History – World War Two @ Weston Museum

Living History - World War Two @ Weston Museum | England | United Kingdom
During Living History, you will have the chance to meet reenactors, who will show how life was during the Second World War, with the opportunity to meet some German troops as well as British troops.
 
The café will be offering a selection of WW2 themed ration recipes and the shop has some vintage style souvenirs and gifts.
 
Kids can also have a go at some transport themed sand art, alongside some WW2 themed craft activities in the Learning Space, with pieces ranging from planes, to trains and tanks. The craft activities will include colouring in, alongside some activities and games that would’ve been played during the war. These activities will take place on the Tuesday and Thursday between 10am and 2pm.
 
There is the chance to share your family’s short stories and photographs from the Second World War; do you have any family stories or memories that could add to our display? Email sophie.sanford@wsm-tc.gov.uk for more information (please note, items must be 2D and be copies not originals).
