Welcome to the home of the 448th Bomb Group
The Control Tower Museum is a place for all members of the family to enjoy. We pride ourselves on a fully-inclusive experience that engages our Little Friends’ enquiring minds by learning through fun, educational activities related to The Tower and World War Two.
WE HAVE ADDED A BRAND NEW ACTIVITY TO THIS PAGE. TAKE A LOOK AT THE AVIATION TRAIL MAP AT THE END OF THIS SECTION. IT HAS LOTS OF WONDERFUL MUSEUMS FOR YOU TO VISIT.
PRINT IT OFF AND TAKE IT WITH YOU ON YOUR ADVENTURES!
Let your children take the driving seat as they follow our free trail map around the different areas of the museum. The ‘Bomber Mission’ is set at three different levels so even the youngest of our Little Friends can search for the artefacts and the eldest can read, in more depth, the fascinating facts surrounding our collection of historical pieces. Completed maps can be handed in for a small prize to reward your little people’s fantastic efforts.
Children who come to Seething Control Tower can’t help but get themselves involved in the craft activities on offer. In the Kids Come Crafting tent, run by an experienced teacher, we offer the opportunity for children to get hands-on with painting, cutting, gluing and designing. As children engage in the design and make tasks, they are taught of the links between what they are making and the historical relevance.
Our aim is to connect the next generation with the significance of their local history and the importance of remembering the actions of people from their past. All monies raised from these activities are donated to The Tower and the children have a lovely keepsake.
Yes, this bit is just for you. We don’t need you to bring anything except your enthusiasm but if you like to be prepared then these are some of the things you could look up before coming:
When was World War Two?
What type of planes would have been at the airfield in the war?
Which nationality was stationed here?
What is an air raid?
Do you have any family members that were involved in the war?
Have you got any questions?
We have plenty of volunteers and enthusiasts on hand to help answer your questions. We can’t wait to see you at our museum!
