Half Term Blast Wall Art Trail
This year we have used images from our Blast Wall artwork display to create our fun trail around the museum. This display can be seen upstairs in the first Hangar.
British units stationed in Afghanistan on Operation Herrick would memorialise their tour by painting a section of the perimeter blast wall of Camp Bastion. Look out for a series of fun and fearsome characters, taken from this wall, as you walk around the museum. If you spot them all remember to re-visit our shop so you can collect your prize.
We also have some fun craft activities to take home with you. Just pick one up from our shop. They are free of charge, although we are always grateful for donations.
