Lots to see very interesting look into military history
A very dedicated staff are happy to share their knowledge of the many military exhibits. A must see for those interested in military history.
Great historical value. Good number of display vehicles.
I was pretty impressed by this museum of army vehicles. I also suggest going when they take some of the tanks and armoured vehicles out for a spin
Great place to go and look at a whole heap of restored military vehicle. Excellent value, and everything works. The collection pretty much has everything on display. Lots of interesting things to discover.
