An exhibition in York


Second stopping place of our British journey, with a visit of York Castle Museum, where is held an exhibition entitled “1914: When the World changed forever”.

The items which are displayed (until 1918) are – I’d say – rather classic, such as this British gas mask, which remains anyway very impressive.

One good point of such is an exhibition is that it’s intended to children too. Children were allowed to touch some items, such a this SMLE rifle, with the support of very nice volunteers. Note the white gloves used by my daughter!

At the end of exhibition, children were encouraged to write their thoughts on a wall.
