On Wednesday I took a day off work to visit the National Army Museum in Chelsea. Mrs BigLee and my youngest daughter Emily accompanied me (my other daughter is 'roughing it' on a Ski Holiday to America poor dear) as we all wanted to see the War Horse Exhibition being held there. Entry to the museum and the special exhibition is free and despite this being the winter Half Term holiday it wasn't too busy.
The Exhibition was very good and looked at the role of the War Horse throughout the history of the British Army (from the New Model Army onwards) although of course there are lots of references to the book, play and film that inspired this display.
I really enjoyed this exhibition and thought that the mix of items on display and the information provided would appeal to a wide range of visitors. There was no 'dumbing down' in the way this was done but it remained relevant and interesting to an old Grognard such as myself and a young whipper snapper such as my 6 year old daughter.
I took a lot of pictures of the rest of the museum but I'll post these over the next few days as I work my way through them. In the meantime I hope you like the pictures of this exhibition.
Looks really interesting, Lee. I'm hoping to go with my daughter (9) in the next couple of weeks, so thanks for the heads up.ReplyDelete
