Parachute Drop

Summer mission: Parachute adventures
Make a parachute for your toy soldier, then put it to the test at our giant drop zone in these family-friendly workshops.

This summer, we’re celebrating the opening of our Conflict in Europe gallery with a different themed family activity every week of the holidays.

Each activity is inspired by one of the time periods covered in our new gallery, ranging from the Napoleonic Wars to the Cold War.

For the fourth week of our travels through time, join us in the Second World War as we prepare our soldiers for an important parachute mission.

Which material, shape and design makes the best parachute? What will you choose? Make sure your paratrooper hits the target and lands safely!
