  • Had an amazing time, the guided tour by Paul was second to non. This place is a real hidden gem. It's highly interactive with plenty of pieces to see and play with. I hugely recommend it and will look forward to returning
  • Went today with my 3 year old daughter and girlfriend and had a brilliant experience, steve our tour guide was great he explained everything in depth but in a way we could easily understand. Would definitely recommend a trip here and all funds go to restoring soldiers headstones to be like new as a sign of respect. 10/10 Will definitely be paying another visit and recommending to family and friends.
  • Took our 6 and 8 year olds today and steve held their attentions for the whole 2 hr tour. It is well worth a visit. We enjoyed every minute.
  • Great for all kids A great day out start of with a breakfast then go on the guided tour of the museum about hour hour & half, enjoy. 13/18th Royal Hussars (QMO) Memorabilia of Yorkshire Calvary Regt should be here at this museum and not at Newcastle, as the men were enlisted from Yorkshire, hope to see it here as this is the Number 1 museum in Doncaster.
  • Visited this morning 21 January 2018 and was totally amazed by this museum. The tour guide was ex army and very knowledgeable we were totally engrossed in everything he had to say to us from the front door at 11am untill we ended it with a cup of coffee in the Naffe canteen, almost 3hrs later. What a fantastic place to visit. We highly recommend a visit or two. X
