Despite living less than 1 mile away I never knew this museum existed. A fascinating insight into what goes on and has gone on behind the scenes. Was then end of 2014 when I visited (but that wasn't a pick list option)

Really enjoyed this as it had relevance to us both having lived in places discussed by the guides. You need to book in advance because of security clearance.
