What is the purpose of visiting the War Years Remembered museum?

War Years Remembered is a war museum and registered charity that is dedicated to protecting, preserving and presenting our heritage relating to the First and Second World Wars.

War Years Remembered was first established in 1994 by David McCallion. The collection covers over 100 years of military and social history during the greatest two wars of the twentieth century, The Great War and The Second World War. The museum has developed over the years, from a not for profit organisation to a registered charity.
