Through the centuries all kind of animals have helped the troops in one way or the other. Being it by warning them for hostile actions, carrying the equipment, giving consolement or sniffing for bombs, these animals are true heroes.

 

Brave Beasts

July 18, 2008 - April 13, 2009

Tacoma the Dolphin, Stubby the Dog, Cher Ami the Pidgeon, Chetak the Horse and Sorus the Eliphant are the main characters in the exhibition Brave Beasts that opens this summer. Which animal do you want to give a medal?

Throughout the whole summer holiday period there are many activities with animals in the museum. Every week there are demonstrations in the outdoor theatre, come and see how dogs are trained to find munition or drugs, how horses can be trained for tournaments and what sledgedogs do in an army.
