  • Took my kids, 14 & 10. Only cost £14 to get in for 2 adults as kids free. They really enjoyed it, really interesting, loved the pretend barrack and trying on helmets and clothing ! Would recommend .  more »
  • If you are at all interested in our military past this is a must see. Four floors of military history, well laid out & presented. Be sure to go all the way up to the roof - the views are fantastic!  more »
  • This is a really interesting place for both children and adults. Everything is beautifully set out and fascinating. A good place to go on a rainy day and plenty of car parking nearby.  more »
