  • A lot of information well presented, and interesting guides giving you a lot of facts. The museum is not big, but provides a lot of insight into a major part of UK history.  more »

  • Fantastic museum staffed by friendly enthusiastic people who knew their history and were only to willing to answer any questions we had. We had a very informative introductory talk from one of the guides explaining all that had gone on at the Cordite factory. Wonderful exhibits very clearly displayed. A must visit place for families with older children. The sacrifices, particularly by the women who worked there, absolutely amazing.
  • I was surprised how much information was packed into this small museum. The staff were friendly and the informative layout had kids in mind. There is a lot of written information on boards - we spent a couple of hours here and enjoyed it. It has a coffee shop too!
  • Really enjoyed our visit but please allow a long time as there is a lot of reading. Excellent exhibits. Refreshments are also available.
  • Worth seeing and taking time to read accounts of local history during the WWI and WWII. Good time for kids and very informative. A small but nice Caff√® too.
  • A fascinating museum for all the family. My two young children really enjoyed themselves here particularly dressing up in wartime clothes. If you are in the area you must visit this place!
