  • Really enjoyed it. The tour with a veteran was really insightful. Enjoyed handling the replicas and disarmed weapons, excellent exhibitions and all for a really good cause of honouring VC winners. Will definitely be back.
  • Brilliant day out. Tour was fantastic. I would highly recommend it. My 4 year old enjoyed holding the guns aswell
  • Perfect everything the staff, the cafe, the tour I think it's a brilliant thing they do for the charity with no help for anyone just the voluntary staff and the public.
  • Its a good place for learning about the British army and its equipment with good knowledgeable guides
  • Great museum A guided tour bringing the exhibits to life and offering a first class experience.
