The new season featuring new displays gets underway at Woodhall Spa Cottage Museum on Wednesday April 1.

The museum, which has benefitted from a Heritage Lottery Fund Grant, traces the history of the village and its inhabitants, the story of the Spa Baths, the wartime links to the RAF and the Dambusters and the Army’s 1st Air-landing Brigade, who were stationed around Woodhall Spa before flying to Arnhem.

This year, for the first time, the small darkroom used by John Wield, who lived in the bungalow for most of his life, will be an added attraction. Also on view is the first of three temporary displays planned for the season, having the theme “Past and Present”.

There are also many interactive displays to enjoy, as well as an Easter Egg Quiz for children during the Easter holidays.

The museum will be open each day from 10.30am until 4.30pm.
