  • A great day out, and something we must never forget
  • It's so expensive for such a small museum. If the price was lower I'd say definitely check it out!
  • Excellent museum, I really enjoyed the aspects of daily life in Portsmouth that were included. My group was able to meet and talk to a British WWII and D-Day veteran while there. The tapestry is absolutely amazing!
  • Great day out.
  • It's good to remember how hard life has been for others in our past
