    This museum is a fascinating resource of WWII to 80s surveillance technology. The volunteer guides are fonts of expert knowledge, having worked there. The artifacts are available to handle and housed ...  more »

    I was a little silly as I had visited another museum earlier in the day, thinking this one could be โ€œdoneโ€ in about a half hour, especially on seeing the entrance. How wrong was I! It really is a Tard...  more »

  • We came across the Radar station on a drive back to our holiday accommodation. .we didn't expect much but wow were we wrong. Don't let the small entrance put you off, you'll easily spend several hours here. All the staff were very friendly and welcoming and the gentlemen who gave their talks were very knowledgeable and engaging. The Victor and Jaguar fighter jet cockpits were a real bonus and you can get in the Jaguar cockpit. What we also really enjoyed was that everything wasn't roped off. You could really get up close with everything. Also look out for interactive exhibits such as the radio room telephone. If you have an interest in cold war, military history, radar history or things along those lines give it a look....and your entry gives you repeat entry for the year! Lastly, a special mentions to the ladies in the tea room who make a great cuppa and hot chocolate :)
  • Highly recommended visit. The museum is superb and there is so much to see and do. The friendly, helpful volunteers make the subject even more interesting by their in depth knowledge and willingness to explain without being boring or too techie. Great for families too as there is plenty to interest the children and there's a good cafe onsite.
  • A truly fantastic place! We did both of the talks and also the tour of the bunker. Fantastic day out with very friendly and helpful volunteer staff. We will return!
  • Staff so friendly and knowledgeable with so much to see....looks small when you arrive,trust me it's like a Tardis inside ๐Ÿ‘
  • Spent a lot longer there than we thought. Enough missiles, cockpits and the like to keep kids interested
