Hands on: hats, helmets and headgear

For children aged 5-12! This February half-term, discover the headgear on display at the National Army Museum at this event for families with members who are visually impaired.

Event features ‘My hat, your hat’ – Join storyteller Giles Abbott to hear all about what happened when two armies met and ‘Head on’ – get hands-on with real helmets from our handling collection, then use different materials to make and test your own. Can you build a helmet that will protect a soldier?
