  • We absolutely loved that you could get into the vehicles and turrets. My little boy (4) wanted to sit in the jeep the whole time. The staff there are very friendly and helpful, they take their time to...  more »
  • We visited Castletown D-day museum yesterday. What a great place! I would highly recommend a visit. They encourage you to pick the memorabilia up and play with it. The boys aged 9, 6 & 50 and mummy ha...  more »
  • Lovely little gem of a museum. Parking is nearby about 30ft away and cheap enough for a few hours. £6.50 each to get in I think under 12s free. Small and compact but they have crammed loads into the s...  more »

  • Great afternoon out with my grandchildren who are 6 (boy) and 5 (girl). They loved it as it was really interactive, they dressed up were able to sit in the vehicles and on motorbikes, hold guns, go into bunkers, dug outs etc the sound effects were very real. The staff were very friendly and informative. Great value for money. You can also get a coffee/tea and a snack, also the use of very clean toilets which is always a bonus.
  • Brilliant little museum, excellent value for money. Staff are all dressed in period costume which adds to the whole experience. It's great that you can sit in vehicles and be able to pick up and touch items, which a lot of museums would not allow. It's also good that dogs are allowed inside too. Definitely recommend a visit.
  • Great little museum packed with lots of interesting history. So different to other museums as u are allowed to touch certain items and u can get in certain vehicles. There were some children that were able to go in the tank and a chap was explaining it all to them. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable and I would recommend a visit if you're in the area.
  • Excellent, hands-on museum that's perfect for kids. I've spent a lot less time at museums that are ten times the size of this little gem. Hats off to the museum staff for helping us make the most of our visit.
  • If you are visiting Dorset, then do not let this gem of a museum escape you. It is worth every minute. If you have kids, its the perfect place, kids can dress up, climb on tanks and anti aircraft guns, and just get stuck in. For adults then loose your self in June 1944. 10 out of 10. and dont forget the staff who all dress up in traditional uniforms.
