War time

Did you know? To celebrate the start of WWI, local families have donated information and artefacts commemorating the lives of their brave loved ones.

A visually impaired visitor touches some of the war time artefacts in the gallery.

Here at Millom Discovery Centre we pay tribute to the local heroes who fought in the wars so long ago. Remember the lives of the brave soldiers of Millom with artefacts and memorabilia from such a harsh time in our history.

We have a small but informative display relating to Millom during World War II. Here you can see actual gas masks that were carried, the ration books that were used to obtain food and other goods, medals awarded to those who fought and other memorabilia.

We pay tribute to those who gave their lives during this war. There are photographs and other documents for you to see honouring the war dead.
