Delve into Peterborough's War Stories

Gas, Guns, Carbolic and Chloroform…

At Peterborough Museum

Saturday 11 & Sunday 12 October, timed tours half hourly through each day.

For Sale

£6 adults, £4 children/concessions, pre-booking recommended

The tour experience lasts about 70 minutes, and is not recommended for children under 8 or those of a nervous disposition.

A very special event and a first for Peterborough Museum as we stage an ‘immersive living history tour’ to experience the process by which wounded men were treated during the Great War.

As you arrive for your timed tour you will be given a service book for a named soldier, before being taken to the trenches. There you will learn about life on the front before being ‘wounded’, then taken on your tour around the Museum to themed areas to experience the stages of treatment undergone by injured servicemen a century ago, from the casualty clearing station to the field hospital, then back to England for an operation. You will finally learn in the recovery area the fate of your serviceman and how he fared after his treatment.

Admission: £6 adults, £4 children/concessions. Pre-booking recommended as spaces for each tour are very limited. For more details and bookings call (01733) 864663.
