    This really is an amazing experince if you are interested in communications, it is a lot bigger than I expected too. It's a bit out of the way and security getting in is tight, you need ID, but it is ...  more »
  • Great place to visit. Loved it. Note that ID is required to get in from the age of 14 NOT 16 as on the website and the leaflets!
  • Brilliant! Good value for money, great cafe, very interesting, could have spent much longer than the 2.5 hours we had there. Allow time for clearing security and take photo ID.
  • Takes you back in time to a wonderful history of communication and warfare.
  • Excellent Museum, interesting displays if a bit technical, radio has moved on a lot since my service in the 60s. Was able to use my DDS card. Can recommend this. Do take ID, you will need to prove who you are to get an entry pass, it is still a working Army camp, but they're very helpful and pleasant.
  • Very well set out in date order, lots of hands on and interactive exhibits. Plenty of information and explanation of the technology. Well worth a visit. 7 year old loved sending Morse and talking on the radio telephones. Staff very helpful and friendly, free parking good cafe, very reasonable prices. Great gift shop.
