Become a Secret Soldier | Bribie Island
31 July, 2020
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until 22 November, 2020
Become a secret soldier is a great educational experience for children interested in history. The War on our shores exhibition commemorates 75 years since the end of World War II, exploring the important role that Bribie Island played in defending Queensland.
American and Australian troops were based on Bribie Island during the war training and developing their skills. What was it like? What did they eat? How did they communicate?
Kids visiting the museum can become a secret soldier and take home a Top Secret Mission Kit to learn about the life of soldiers and medical personnel during WWII.
Learn Morse code, whip up your own soldier rations from the ration recipes file, and become a master at recognising friendly planes from enemy ones. This is a free event and no bookings are required.
