Bentley Priory Museum celebrates the men and women of WWII in a history lesson like no other. Bring the past to life through interactive exhibits, in costume and by getting hands on!
Families are encouraged to follow trails and dig into their trusty Explorer's Kit Bag to tick off clues and discover hidden gems. You’ll hear stories of ‘The One’ - Air Chief Marshal Sir Hugh Dowding; ‘The Few’ who fought in the Battle of Britain, and ‘The Many’ whose tireless work and courage kept the country afloat. Kids can then take a seat in a life-size replica Spitfire cockpit or play the part by dressing up in some handmade period costumes.
For our school visitors we have a fantastic learning programme to engage pupils and enrich their historical enquiry and get them to explore the galleries and get up closer with different periods of Bentley Priory's history.
