An EGG-cellent packed programme of school holiday fun lies in store at the Army Flying Museum at Middle Wallop in Hampshire this Easter.

Following on from unprecedented numbers at February half-term, the Easter holidays have lots in store for visitors throughout the Easter break, starting with an Easter Egg hunt which will run from Good Friday to Easter Monday.

Popular model making sessions are also back on Thursday 4 and Monday 8 April and the Museum’s new regular holiday attraction, will enable visitors to walk around an Apache Helicopter with use of their special VR headsets on Thursday mornings during the holidays. Free craft activities run daily from 10-1230 and children also have the opportunity to take part in a special Easter trail running throughout the holidays.

Two new events finish the packed programme with visitors encouraged to get their hands dirty on Wednesday 3 April with the team from Spaces for Growing and make their very own wild-flower seed bombs to take home and use in their gardens. To end the Easter holidays, the Museum will be getting a very special visit from Em’s Friendly Farm on Thursday 11 April who will be bringing a few of their animals along to the Museum for visitors to see.

Along with all the interactives, dressing up and play areas at the Museum, there is plenty to keep everyone busy and all activities throughout the week are included in ticket price which also comes with a free annual pass offered by the Museum.

Lucy Johnson, CEO of the Army Flying Museum said: “We were thrilled to see so many new and returning visitors at half term participating in the wide range of activities we now offer at all the school holidays. We are very excited about our Easter programme and so pleased that we are continuing to provide all the additional activities as part of the general ticket income, giving families excellent value for money”.

Everyone that visits the Museum only needs to pay once to receive a free annual pass and this has proved an extremely popular incentive to residents around Hampshire and Wiltshire who have seen increased value for their passes over the last twelve months, with a significant increase in the number of activities being offered by the Museum.

Due to large numbers of visitors at half term, the Museum encourages visitors and annual pass holders to book online in advance for their visits to avoid disappointment.
