Heritage Open Days

As part of the national Heritage Open Days events, Grantham Museum is inviting local people to come and discover their own family connections to the Great War. Our researchers will help uncover family stories and service records which might then go on to form part of 100 Years On our WW1 exhibition opening at the end of October.
