Ever met a World War I soldier or nurse? Probably not! With ‘soldier in the classroom’, pupils get that chance. A specially trained narrator will come to your class packed and in uniform. Are you also visiting our museum? Then you can also book ‘soldier in class’ in our education room.


With its more than 50 objects, our soldier or nurse can easily talk for several hours about life in World War I. From uniform jacket to bottoms, all parts of their equipment tell a special story.
