Our 2016 exhibition 'Wartime Advances, Peacetime Applications' has come to an end. We are already thinking about next year's exhibition. 2017 will mark some notable anniversaries, especially the 50th anniversary of the introduction of colour television and the beginning of Radio 1, 2 and 3.
We would welcome new Museum Guides for next year. If you would like to volunteer, please contact us using this link.
VISIT BY AIR CADETS
A group of Air Cadets from Grangemouth was welcomed to the Museum on the evening of Wednesday 12 October. After being introduced to the various sections of the Museum, including the 'Y' Service display, Radio Room, early communications equipment and the WW1 trench, they spent time discovering and trying out old methods of communication. As you can see from the second photo, they were very impressed with trench!!!
