Incredible experience. From tanks to planes. You name it they have it. Take a detailed tour though some of histories engineering marvels. Museum is conveniently located and affordable. R 30 entrance for kids and double for adults. Able to actually get into many of the vehicles. Great day out for the family.
If you are a historian or just like to visit museums in general and are interested in history you need to visit this place. You will spend hours on end walking through the museum looking around and be breathless at the amount of time and effort spend to exhibit all there is to see. Would highly recommend to visit at least once.
A very interesting War museum that kept me fascinated for hours. well laid out in well kept gardens and exhibition halls. Well worth a visit if military vehicle, old aeroplanes and war history and memorabilia interest you.
This is a wonderful place to visit as it is interesting and extremely well looked after. We loved it and will definitely be back as there is so much to see that one visit doesn't give you enough time.
Fascinating place to visit. Wonderful history and amazing insight to wars and conflicts of the past! Great potential for a high school history class visit too!
