I’ve been a volunteer at the Northern Branch of the Imperial War Museum in Trafford, Manchester since 2005. I help out in two areas, in the Main Exhibition Space, and on the Ground Floor in a computer area called “Your History”
There is a timeline which directs visitors around the museum’s Main Exhibition Space. It begins with a “Mini-Timeline” with eighteen various objects each relating to a particular point on the timeline itself. As you walk round, you are introduced to the various events that led up to each conflict. You also Pass a number of Silo Areas, which cover a particular subject to do with both world wars. These cover soldiers experiences, through to the technologies used in warfare. The Large objects include a T-54 tank from world war II and a Trebant Estate Car created in Post-war East Germany, and Action Stations explain the roles these items played during that time.
