Bringing World War II to Life
The museum was set up by the Panton Brothers in honour of their older brother who had died in service on a Lancaster Bomber. Along with a Lancaster Bomber and other amazing artefacts, the museum houses the Escaper's Museum. This is where you can learn the story of those who escaped Colditz, the real life story of 'The Great Escape' and the events that happened to one airman - Ronald T. Emeny.
This was a fantastic way to bring the children's learning to life; it was like a step back in time. Along with history and facts, they were able to appreciate the human cost of those going to war and all those left at home.
We are using these experiences to support our writing.
