Ever wanted to meet a real Roman soldier? Or hear tales from a World War Two warden? Or find out what drives a lady to become a collector in the ‘man’s-world’ of the Victorian era? Now’s your chance!

How did Romans play the board game now on display in our Devon and Exeter gallery? What was it like to hide inside an Anderson shelter? How did it feel to discover the hundreds of prehistoric flint tools in the ‘Finders Keepers?’ gallery?Our time travelling guests will be moving around the museum throughout the day – can you find them all?
