  • Found this museum in a brochure decided to give it a visit. It is a small museum but packed with information about women helping the soldiers of World War 1 in specially built munitions factories. They have plenty interactive sections to keep the kids happy. I would definitely recommend this place for all ages. It is wheelchair friendly has a lift to 2nd floor, a disabled toilet & a small cafe.
  • Great museum for adults and children. Fantastic to learn about this massive munitions factory and the people who lived and worked there. Its a shame nothing remains of the actual 9 mile long Facility. Only 4 stars as i believe the entrance fee was a bit high.
  • Lovely little find about the local munitions factory from WW1 which was nine miles long. Really informative especially the role of the women workers...took my 11 year old daughter who enjoyed dressing up and learnt lots.
  • Small but very interesting museum. Scones very nice seemed to be home made. Unfortunately the vr for the nuclear power station was out of order.
  • Fantastic museum and even kept my two kids (15 and 11) interested! The staff were very friendly and helpful.
