    I loved the interactive Blitz exhibit. I really felt like I was in a bombed out London.

    Exactly. My mum took my nephew and niece for that and you get the whole Anderson shelter experience (dirt through the roof, ground shaking, the lot). Half of a joke is that the table shelter (a reinforced dining table) was still suggested for a nuke war lol

    The most effective moment in the scenario is in the entry way, a small compartment with wooden benches. You're in there hearing the bombs dropping, the city alarms, with the person leading you through the experience. That person kicked the bench I was on unexpectedly & I felt like jumping out of my skin. From then on, I was open to whatever I was shown. & it was a doozy.
