Here is Knight J ready to go slay some dragons.
Lady Miss K waiting.
There are over 70,000 items in the collection. We did see lots of things. We found things that have fit with the history we have studied this year -- The War of the Roses, Henry VIII, Safavid, and a few others. It did make our history a bit real.
There was mail that you could feel. I am impressed with the kid friendliness of the museums. There were a number of things to do or touch.
We did see a sword fighting demonstration. Instead of just fighting they fought but talked about what they were doing and explained what would happen. I felt like I learned something not just watched a sword fight.
J is trying to put the puzzle of Henry VIII together.
The museum is free we just paid for parking. It was not crowded at all. It was a nice way to celebrate J's birthday.
