Join us at STEAM this may half term for this fascinating half term family activity.


In collaboration with our brand-new exhibition ‘GWR What’s Your Emergency?’ come and handle fascinating objects from our Education Handling Collection associated with the Emergency Services.

Dress up as a GWR police officer, complete with a GWR truncheon, or a WW2 nurse looking after injured soldiers travelling on a hospital train. Pretend to put out a fire with our stirrup pump or scoop sand onto a flaming incendiary bomb.
