Home Education Trip To The D-Day Museum

Yesterday Hannah and i went to The D-Day museum in Southsea with our home ed group. Hannah found the museum pretty scary on the whole, she did look around most of it and definitely learned something about her grandma's childhood (my mum was 4 when WW2 started) but we didn't go into it in too much depth as Hannah can be very sensitive and worries a lot!

The visit started with a short film about the war, then we walked around the exhibitions,

This is President Franklin Roosevelt, General Dwight Eisenhower and Prime Minister Winston Churchill planning the D-Day Invasion

And that was the end of our visit! Maybe i'll take Hannah back when she's a bit older because it was actually a really great museum and i would have loved to spend more time there looking around.
