Thank you to everyone who came along for our first Saturday opening on Saturday 6th April 2019.
Visitors of all ages visited to learn about the role of Northern Ireland in the Second World War.
An evacuees suitcase and a weekly basket of rationed food interested children who had learnt about rationing and evacuation in their classrooms. Activities included making your own ration book or identity card and weighing out a 2 oz. ration of sweets to take home.
1940’s music played in the background while families played with wartime games and toys. Many also dressed up in real wartime uniforms and helmets to pose for a photograph.
The Northern Ireland War Memorial will continue to open on the first Saturday of every month from 12pm-4pm. We look forward to meeting more of you then!
