I’ve got two more videos to share today, coming from very different museums who participated in Museums at Night.
The Hovercraft Museum only opens on certain days throughout the year, but had received a lot of advance publicity – possibly thanks to their James Bond and Top Gear ice cream van hovercrafts. Warwick Jacobs also spoke up for their event when he was interviewed on Radio 4’s You and Yours Museums at Night special programme. Their full day and evening of activities was a tremendous success, and just watching this video makes me want to take a ride on a hover!
The Tank Museum received a lot of advance publicity for their evening event (including writing a guest post on this very blog!) Dave and Sean are fans of military history, and had visited once before several years ago, but discuss what drew them back to this particular evening event: “It’s nice coming round the Tank Museum when there aren’t little kids running round with ice creams!”
