Night At The (Submarine) Museum

Last month I went and stayed at a museum overnight. Something I always wanted to do since the film series with Ben Stiller came out. I imagined that it would be quite spooky in a museum at night but it wasn’t too bad. No dinosaurs or men came alive thankfully !

Set up by The Submarine Museum in Gosport, the visit included a whole evening full of activities. One of the activities was a look in HMS Alliance, which is a massive submarine. There wasn’t a huge amount of space though inside as I’m told that it had just under 70 crew in total ! We also had a little nosey around the museum itself, plus found out detail of living conditions for a sailor on board. We finished up the evening with some craft and a film later on – no guesses to what that was to be !

The reason I went was because it was a trip for our Girl Guiding members and I’m glad I went as it was a long time since I was there last. I gained a sew on badge for my collection – I actually get more badges as an adult helper now, more than when I was a Girl Guide!

I know this post is a little late as I went at the back end of last month, but I want to thank all the rest of the leaders and museum staff that I spent my rather pleasant evening with. Especially Susan who arranged the trip in the first place. Of course I will too be mentioning this on my end of year write up, as it is one of my highlights of the year !
