Special School Activities - November

Schools are invited to come along to our special WW1 learning day - A Day in the Trenches.  Please contact the Museum for further information.


Special Evening Event! Immerse yourself in life during World War 2 by taking part in Nuneaton Museum’s special evening event, The Blitz and the Borough.

Take a step back in time and experience what life was like during the WW2 blitz when Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery became the ARP (Air Raid Precautions) headquarters for the Borough. For its Museum at Night Event on October 27, visitors will be transported back to early 1941 and are invited to immerse themselves in the blitz experience by dressing the part, listening to a wartime sound piece, handling original artefacts and enjoying a trip to the mini cinema to watch a film about rationing.

Suitable for all ages, the event will take place from 6 until 8.30pm and although free, donations will be welcomed, all children should be accompanied by an adult.
