  • Great place to spend a wet morning. Came at least 10 years ago more things to see nice little cafe and gift shop. 
  • Ample parking. Bit pricey at £7 each as only spent about an hour there. Good wander down memory lane and interesting looking at the vehicles. We were the only people there which was a shame 
  • Great guided tours by ex military volunteers together with a broad but somewhat eclectic collection of artifacts including a great 1940 s street scene . Glad to see they are broadening their collection into more general heritage . A place the whole family can enjoy
  • Interesting tanks and equipment from WWI to the present day
  • Fun an enjoyable place a must see
  • Loved the ambience of Violet's 1940s Cafe.
  • This is where much of the 'tank overhaul' series was filmed, and it is great to see not only the museum but also the continuing refurbishment process going on around you. There are all sorts of stripped down engines & gearboxes etc to gawp at... Our tour guide was excellent, and allowed us to sit in a tank and anti-aircraft gun to give us an idea what it must have felt like. Interesting stuff - missed our ferry because of this place! Will be back on driving day.
