Bentley Priory Museum tells the story of its role as Headquarters Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain. As part of its summer 2018 activities Bentley Priory Museum approached us to develop drop in activities for their young visitors. The museum wanted to bring to life the stories of the RAF in World War 2 for young visitors.
We were delighted to rise to the challenge and set our inventive thinking caps on. After a lot of fun experimenting and prototyping, we soon had a set of great activities. We even had a lovely take home or two, too.
Young visitor numbers to Bentley Priory museum exceeded expectations. As soon as we heard back from Bentley Priory Museum, we worked flat out to make as many additional kits as we could.
Designing and developing new activities for Bentley Priory was a delight from start to finish. Judging by the feedback on Twitter young visitors loved it too.
Thank you to all who have visited for #pilotschool, we welcomed record numbers this summer! It’s been great to see all the lovely feedback too, we hope you all enjoyed the activities. A huge thank you also to @hands_science for working with us to create such engaging activities! pic.twitter.com/VpZB3Y6zj8
