  • This is quite a new museum and it's a great addition to Yorks offering. We had a bit of a whistle stop tour but there are some incredible artefacts and stories, giving a superb insight into soldiering...  more »
  • A very informative, small but perfect Museum. My youngest child who is 8 loved the mock bunker with gun and dress up soldier outfits. As it was half term there were also extra activities for the child...  more »

  • This place was OK but it was smaller than I expected but the exhibitions were great the only problem I had here is there wasn't much to see & their "the Somme" special exhibitions were a table with writing on it & the walls were just pinned on paper. If this place was bigger & their special exhibitions were more exiting/interesting I would give this place a 5star/lived rating.
  • This is a hidden gem of a museum. It's wonderfully laid out, full of history, military memorabilia and character, and has friendly staff. Memorable displays include a full size display of an infantryman's uniform and weaponry from the Napoleonic War that confronts you, bayonet and all, on entering the museum. My personal favourite part of the display was the 'taken' cabinets - essentially the 'trophies of war', ie. stuff the regiments pinched from the battlefield! The museum shop also had some intriguing/odd things to buy, such as 'chocolate grenades' and even a full sniper ghillie for kids. Well worth a visit.
  • Amazing place to come with kids.
  • All very good
  • If you are interested in war & history, this is the place to be go. Exhibits are well-documented.
