  • A fantastic albeit small museum documenting the military history of the province by people of all communities. Knowledgeable volunteer staff and some brilliant exhibits. Bonus - its free! Be aware the entrance is tuvked away. Look for the signage.
  • A very interesting place definitely an eye opener into the bravery, courage and determination of the ordinary Ulster man in the street. A place to be visited, respected and rembered.
  • Its a small museum thats a bit hard to find as its behind a closed off building. Fortunately, there are signs pointing you to the right direction, so just follow them and you should arrive at the front. It's free to enter for all visitors. The musuem is very small. The exhibits are all in one room, mostly displaying world war 1 and 2 artifacts. There isn't much context given for most of the items shown, so unless you are a history buff or are lucky enough to get the owner to guide you, it might be quite boring to the average visitor. As a Malaysian, it is exciting to see that the Pingat Jasa Malaysia is shown here. Any Malaysians wanting to see this medal that is awarded to commonwealth soldiers can visit this place to have a look.
  • Very interesting museum and very helpful staff if you're doing any research.
  • A lot of superbly interesting information about the regiment, run by people that clearly care an awful lot about the memory of the fallen. Had a great conversation about WWI Irish casualties with the fellow on the reception desk. Superb archive of military history texts which we saw as the main space was used for a meeting.
