  • The kids loved this place, unfortunately just a few too many 'do not touch' signs about. Not really an all day thing but if you have an hour or so free then worth a visit.
  • Random rubbish! As someone who visits many military museums across the world, this is the worst one ive ever visited. Point one is what is the theme of the museum? There are tanks, aircraft and all sorts of random home front bits. If you have a museum, why cant you make it topical? Thousands of men from the isle of white went to gallipoli as part of the isle of white rifles however there is no mention that I could see apart from a white board that had pernemant marker on it describing the somme, where are the stories of the regiment? The artifacts? All I sore was different vehicles all badly needing re painting all shuved in a room, I do not recommend this museum to anybody, especially kids or someone who wants to see something vagelly interesting because there is nothing for kids to do and the vehicles have little or no info about them, the museum is plastered with 'do not climb' which is annoying and the most anmoying thing about the whole museum is that the only interesting thing in there was the first war bits however the desplay which is only a few bits is shuved behind a truck, there is even medals that someone won during the great war in a corner without ribbons that cost peanuts and there is nothing about the man, please please please hire a museum curator to help design the museum better, please add more ww1 displays instead of things that no one is interested in, a waste of £7 I think
  • Nice friendly lots to see nice cafe enjoyed our visi
  • 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
  • Good museum well worth a visit. Tank and APC rides too
