  • This is a most amazing museum. They show the development of all weapons, from the simply crude and effective, right up to the modern day computer assisted ones. The display of medals is the best I have seen in any museum.
  • A truly excellent museum with the most helpful staff. A great few hours enjoyed by us all. Highly recommend.
  • A hidden gem if you are interested in Military History! Weaponry from the English Civil War right the way through to the Gulf War. The Mason Collection is one of the most amazing SIS/MI6 real spy collections of artefacts I've ever seen the Imperial War Museum must be green with envy that they don't have this collection. Like something out of Bond but all true/real! Well worth the very reasonable entry fee.
  • Amazing collection of artefacts from a Roman javelin head to a Viking sword, early English swords, uniforms from all ages, a large small arms collection, Rapier and Bloodhound missiles systems, local history items from the first and second world wars, and a collection of cold war spy equipment; plus armoured vehicles. Wow!
  • This military museum is one of the best I have ever visited. It is packed with unique and historically important artefacts form ancient times to the present day. Don't be fooled by its appearance, the stuff on display ranges from medieval suits of armour to torpedoes and a jet engine. One of Europe‚Äôs largest collections of firearms is also on display. I spent over 3 hours there. This museum is definitely worth a visit.
