The Combined Military Services Museum is like no other. From the thousands of military artefacts on display, your students will have the opportunity to see original objects from various historical events right here in Essex! With a focus on British militaria, the museum can tailor specific guided talks and educational packages to fit the needs of any school and their curriculum.
