  • 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.
  • Kind of cool, but a little bit too small, as a museum ... a man expects to spend watching exhibits more than 30 minutes. I hope that you will over time be developed and expanded.
