    My boyfriend and I came here on Wednesday (16/08) just wanted to thank the lovely lady who showed us how to use the guns. She's the type of person you wanna work with!  more »

    Awesome place to spend an hour or three. Lots to see, good informative displays. Some great stories behind the exhibits. I'll be back again.

    Excellent experience. One of the best exhibits i have seen. The ability to get up and close, even inside a vehicle was a great. Good value for money, wide range of tanks, apc's, artillery and specialised vehicles. Staff were excellant. Would be even better if there was somewhere to purchase food, but it was good in one sense, otherwise we would have spent all day there. Looking forward to coming back.

    Amazing array of military might. Some missiles and tanks you wonder how they got into the building.

    Enjoyed the visit with my 4YO son - who asked to go here. Lots of vehicles (tanks, APCs, trucks) and artillery on display, models, great kids play table, display pieces. Only reason it's missing a 5* is that all displays (except for the APC ride - which we didn't do due to time) are static display only - really needs a simulator or option to sit in a partial cabin to get more of a feel of what its like inside one of there beasts. Also, more digital content like videos, war stories, great tank battles etc would really accentuate the experience.
