Look, listen and learn as one browses through historic and purpose-built buildings filled with memorabilia and stories from all war time eras.
Our displays will feature stories shared by local service persons themselves in book form or as stories or by their descendants, giving readers a better understanding of their experiences.
Displays featuring life at home in war time eg comforts funds, womens lady army, farm machinery and essential services, encourage visitors to share their memories or stories passed down within their family. For others the displays stir memories from long ago that they may now care to share.
