Parachute Adventures

Fly high at the National Army Museum with their Summer mission: Parachute adventures activities and workshops. Inspired by the Special Forces: In the Shadows exhibition, the Museum is running a series of fun filled activities for children of all ages throughout the summer holiday.

From parachute making to camouflage and aerodynamics, participants will learn about the challenges of working in extreme conditions through a variety of specially designed drop-in workshops and activities. Put your knowledge and skills to the test as you design, create, and target drop your parachute. Does your parachute have what it takes to survive the fall? See how it stacks up against the competition by joining our leader board for the more competitive challenges.   


What happens once your parachute lands safely? The journey to the ground is just the beginning of your mission. Learn about how to ensure you pack the right tools for success and test your memory in our Kim’s game activity. Do you have the skills and knowledge needed to complete this mission?
