An Indoor Family Day

August, 2018

An extremely wet and windy Sunday 26 August forced the Museum’s Events Team to implement their ‘wet weather plan’ for Family Day 2018 by moving the tables and displays into the Merston and Meryl Hansed Memorial aircraft halls.

Over 700 visitors braved the elements to enjoy the indoor stalls and exhibits, making it a very successful Family Day enjoyed by staff and visitors alike in spite of some terrible weather.
