Vacation Time (Malvern Museum)

Looking for things to do while we are here in the UK, I searched nearby attractions on the internet and found that the Malvern Museum were holding a World War 1 exhibition.

The description on the web site:
Malvern Museum has begun its programme of exhibitions and activities to commemorate the momentous years of the Great War as it affected the inhabitants of the Malvern area.

Visitors receive a replica 1915 National Registration card, which gives brief details of one of 20 individuals who lived in Malvern at the outbreak of war. Visitors will discover what happened to them in a fuller description found in the last display room where other Great War events can be seen.

So off we went down to the beautiful town of Malvern in Worcestershire.

With a cost of 2 Pounds entrance fee I was looking forward to seeing a collection of artifacts from the Great War. The museum is small but the collection is good. The History of Malvern is evident in all the four rooms showing the many items.
