For families

The International Bomber Command Centre is great for families, it is educational and fun, allowing both children and adults to learn through experiencing the exhibition galleries with their interactive displays and exhibits, the Peace Gardens and the Memorial.  There are family fun sheets, a dressing up-station, book stations and a year long programme of free family events.
