The British Motor Museum will be transformed into World War I Britain this weekend as it commemorates the centenary of the First World War.

Visitors will be able to explore the B2737 Battle Bus, learn about the conditions soldiers lived in on the front lines and take part in activities include decoding secret messages and bandaging wounds in the ‘Casualty Clearing Station’.

We’re really thrilled to be holding this WWI Family Weekend and are delighted to be hosting ‘B2737 – the Battle Bus’.

Our school visitors will have had a great week of WWI activities and now it’s the turn of our family visitors.”

– Caroline Reid, Education Officer at the British Motor Museum
