What is there to do?

Kids, get ready to see some pretty incredible military vehicles up close, because we're off to the AAF Tank Museum in Virginia!

Their mission is to collect, restore, preserve and display as many Cavalry and Tank artifacts as possible. In fact, they have the most extensive collection of International Tank & Cavalry artifacts in the world!

Not only is this important to teach all kids and families who visit the history of the wars, but also to preserve the memories of the men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice. 

Through fascinating exhibits and collections, the AAF Tank Museum can increase the public's awareness to the realities of war, and continue the reminder about those missing or lost in conflict. 

This ensures that future generations will be able to continue learning and hearing their stories, and to be inspired. 

Your journey through the museum will see you explore 120 tanks and artillery pieces, as well as machine guns, mortars, flames, and even children's uniforms.  From hats and helmets, to even an exhibit dedicated to Elvis in his military years, there is so much to see.

The museum features an exhibit on Eva Braun, as well as Canadians in Conflict, and even Marilyn Monroe's involvement with the troops!

It's a great catalyst for discussions about the war with the kids, and to introduce them to the human side of conflict.

A touching, eye-opening and educational day out for all.
