  • Interesting exhibits with more than 100,000 original pieces collected in one spot. Very accessible and well laid out. It's a place one could visit more than once & still enjoy the memorabilia on show
  • History but not as you would usually find it. This collection would require a number of visits before you could say you have delved into it.

  • Excellent exhibition.
