We visited this museum on a rainy afternoon and were pleased we did. The children enjoyed doing the stamp collecting in the various rooms and I thought the WW1 & 2 rooms were very interesting.

A very informative day out with great activities and displays. Much better than I expected; the staff were very knowledgeable and helpful.

What a great day out. The museum is totally awesome. Not just a lot of tanks to look around, but the manner in which they are displayed is fantastic. There is something for everyone at the museum. Highly recommended.
