Both Mr. Bowman's list and the one sent by Mr. Spacek came originally
from a list of members put out by the Federation of Scout Museums
International. The contact for this organization is listed as:
Harry Thorsen, 7305 Bounty Drive, Sarasota, Florida, USA 34231
Updated copies of this listing can be obtained by sending a self-addressed
stamped envelope or international postage coupons to him.
Some of these museums are seasonal, some open by appointment only, and
some may have closed, so please write or phone before visiting. Where I have
information about hours, it is listed here.
Some charge admission, some don't. If nothing is said about admission in the
listing, I have no information.

To get to Gilwell Park take the Underground to Walthamstow Central
station. Once there, pick up the BritRail train to Chingford.
Chingford is the end of the line, so it is difficult to miss this stop.
After exiting Chingford station, Gilwell is about a 2 mile walk. A cab
ride there will cost you about UKP2. If you're walking, turn right
after leaving the station and head towards the edge of town. The road
you're on will curve to the right. Just at this curve, there will be
a road on the left, take it. Follow that road until you come to
Gilwell park on your left. This road passes a golf course and many
nice homes. Don't be surprised to see horseback riders on your walk.
Just when you think you can't possibly be going right, you will find
Corrections or additions should be sent to Fred Webb <email@example.com>
