Welcome to our mobile museum, if not the first of its kind,

then certainly the best.


We are a non-profit organisation and we can bring our large collection of interactive artefacts to schools, residential settings, clubs and local events and festivals.

We're fully mobile! 

We hold exhibitions at local and regional events and festivals across the South of England. We can set up at most events and we can tailor our displays to suit any themes you may have. We do talks and demonstrations throughout the day, so it's great fun for kids and adults alike. 

We also organise educational days for schools, interactive talks for clubs, residential settings and other organisations, and bespoke events.

 The display space is large enough for people to get a genuine museum experience. Because it’s a mobile collection, it’s something else that most museums are not:

Fully interactive!

You can try on the costumes and uniforms, swing the swords and read the letters. Whether you're interested in mammoth teeth or artillery shells, there is no better way to learn about history than to hold it.

And there's more...


We produce family trees and we conduct research on any

unidentified items you have.


We can help with research into your family miltary research, assisting you to trace your relatives and advising on how to obtain any replacement medals.


We offer a free identification service for any of your strange old things. Just send us a picture or bring your item along to one of our shows... 


Please do email any questions/comments/suggestions/feedback

so we can improve this project. 


We are always seeking new items of interest for our collection, for details of how to loan or donate your strange old thing to the museum, call us or email us.
