Winchester’s Military Museums’ popular school trips are available to book now for Autumn term 2022. Situated in the heart of the City of Winchester, Hampshire, the six museums that form Winchester’s Military Museums deliver learning experiences that are interesting, engaging, educational and fun. Using real artefacts, expert knowledge, and our unique collections, a school trip to Winchester’s Military Museums brings the curriculum to life.
Our First World War workshops include artefact handling, remembrance, the symbolism of the poppy and trying on uniforms from the period. It can also include a visit to our local cemetery to understand the significance of War Graves. During a Second World War visit we also use real objects and uniforms to bring 1939-1945 to life, and we explore the symbolism behind British medals awarded for service.
All of our educational sessions are taught by expert museum staff and cost just £5 per pupil (2022 pricing). Book now for the autumn term – availability is limited.
