Immerse yourself in history and find out what life was like during the war at Wight Military and Heritage Museum in Northwood.
There are so many interactive opportunities available, such as having your photograph taken with one of the small arms, or in the back of an armoured car. You can even test your skills on the air-rifle range for an additional charge.
Representing life in Great Britain during the Second World War is a 1940s street scene, with replica shop fronts such as an Air Raid Precautions (ARP) office, mechanics workshop, general stores and Sunday school room.
Other interesting items from the Second World War include an American half-track and a huge Mighty Scammell recovery truck. There are also many exhibits from earlier conflicts and more recent military history like our Russian surface to air missile.
From the First World War, you will find machine guns on display and the remains of a Howitzer gun trail, which was destroyed in Iraq after being manned by a group of young men from Freshwater.
Churchills, the museum cafe, is filled with Churchill memorabilia and provides hot and cold refreshments, while the gift shop stocks a very wide range of items.
You can purchase your entrance tickets through Wightlink at a reduced price when booking your ferry. Simply select a sailing that falls during the attraction’s opening dates and add on your tickets in the Extras menu.
