What we offer on a school trip
The museum offers a range of military vehicles and memorabilia as well as stories about many conflicts. The history of East Anglia at war is reflected in photographs and easy to follow text. Students can work with a quiz to learn more about the exhibits which begin with the Norfolk Yeomanry in the 18th century and conclude with modern conflicts in the Middle East.
The museum has a range of facilities indoors including a Café for snacks or packed lunches, a shop offering merchandise with a military theme for pocket money spending in addition to modern toilets. A Meeting Room is available for up to 25 pupils if a private lesson is required.
Outside, there are picnic areas, a play area for young children as well as a playing field. A Military Lorry ride for up to 14 people takes a tour of the old Royal Artillery Camp to see the original Anti-Aircraft Guns, the Airfield, Pill Boxes in addition to an operational RAF Radar Station and an Atmospheric Observatory used by the University of East Anglia. This trip is described by a commentary and gives great views of the North Norfolk coast and sea. It needs to be booked in advance.
