Overview

“Great hands-on activities and all very accommodating with lovely staff” (Teacher from Woodston Primary School)

Bring history alive with a day full of costumed interpreters and discover how the museum building and its people played their role in WWII as you step back in time to one specific day in 1941. As London experienced their longest and worst night of the Blitz, bombs dropped on the Priestgate area in Peterborough.

The story for the day is that the children have just recently arrived at Peterborough North Station and have been brought to the Museum building for safety before being billeted to new families.

Before the visit, classes are given names of children who were evacuated to Peterborough during WWII. It will be great if you arrive on the day with your names on stickers.
