Did you know that they have four fascinating museums at Park Hall?
From WWI and WWII trenches, a Victorian School, Welsh Guards Collection to an Iron Age Roundhouse.
WW1 Trenches. This unique labyrinth allows you to experience the very nature of trench warfare through the decades, starting from World War One through to the modern day. Immerse yourselves in the conditions that the soldiers would have lived, and fought in as you explore the different trenches. Explore the Construction Of World War One dugouts, journey forward to the tin lined World War Two trenches and discover the ‘above ground’ trenches such as those used in the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. This representative set of trenches was built in an attempt to recreate the very nature of trench warfare through the ages.
Welsh Guards Collection. Come and immerse yourselves in the history of the Welsh Guards at Park Hall, home of the official Welsh Guards collection. The official collection of the Welsh Guards Regimental Association was started by curator Stan Evans in 1995. We are proud to offer a permanent home to a magnificent collection of uniforms, artifacts and memorabilia which depicts the history of the life in the Welsh Guards from its formation in 1915. Experience what it’s like to be a Welsh Guardsman; dress up in the authentic Buckingham Palace uniform, stand in the sentry box, be thrown in a cell and you can even try a machine gun for size!
Victorian School. The Victorian School at Park Hall offers a unique insight in to the school life of a child born in the Victorian era by letting them immerse themselves in the lessons that the generations before them would have experienced. When the reign of Queen Victoria began in 1837 many children were too poor to attend school However, by the 1860’s education was becoming to be regarded as a right and not a privilege and by 1880 it was compulsory for all children between five and ten to attend school. However, discipline was very strict because many Victorians believed that to educate poor children might lead them to disagree with their ‘elders and betters’.
Iron Age Roundhouse. Offers you a unique insight into how the people of the Iron age lived. Explore their homes and study the kind of instruments and tools they would have used to do simple everyday tasks. The Roundhouse was built as an example of the type of dwellings that people would have lived in during the Iron Age. Interpretation boards and artefacts inside the house offer an insight to the life of Iron Age people.
