Winston Churchill's Britain at War Museum
This superb exhibition will give you a real flavor of what it was like to live in Britain during the Second World War. Experience a bombed department store, an air raid shelter, read newspaper cuttings from the Blitz, or just marvel at wax models and authentic, old-fashioned paraphernalia from the time at the Winston Churchill's Britain at War Museum. Kids can try on real uniforms and gas masks, and also test their knowledge in quizzes and worksheets. There's heaps of information on Britain's most famous Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, as he was the figurehead of the war, but be warned, the exhibition revels in the glories of victory so don't expect much mention of the full savagery of the war.
Beware if you go here as they are so stingy they won't allow you the web voucher discount unless you print a separate one for every single member of the group. How pedantic can you be? It is not cheap and we felt the Imperial War Museum was much better.
The youngest one enjoyed trying on the hats and gas masks best... but they have service hats to try at the IWM.
Visited the museum during some spare time on a business trip to the UK...I'm from the U.S. I can still see the images of the "bunker" in my mind that are found in the museum. Really takes you back to what the experience must have been like living through WWII and the blitzkrieg on London. Want to go back someday and take my husband with me...he'd love it!
I found the museum very educational and interesting i visited the museum as a child on a school trip 14 years ago, i found the trip very emotional and interesting at the same time, it has made me appreciate life growing up as a child.As children from that era would have had a tough life,i appreciate the elderly also as if it wasnt for those who fought our War we would not live the lifes we have today.
I would recommend the Museum myself for children as it is very educational. I will be visiting again in the new year 07.
Very informative with realistic props and authentic sounds and actual air raid shelter used during the war. Short movie at the beginning and a very well stocked gift shop at the end of the experience. A little pricy (but everything is in London) but well worth it if you are interested in the London blitz.
I travelled from bedfordshire to see this. Sad to say that it was very small and didn't contain much. It was only mildly interesting and it wasn't much fun. They seemed to just throw in anything from wartime including ladies dresses and mens pipes in no organised manner. The small bombed out building was quite interesting but there was parts of mannequins lying everywhere supposedly to look like human body parts but looked unreal and daft. I wouldn't recommend this to others as it is too small. I was in and out in half an hour and at the end I thought "is that it?" I didn't think it was worth the time or the money. I would say to anyone thinking of going not to bother,go to the imperial war museum instead.
