In general terms the entire museum is well designed making good use of space with easy to read arrows to direct you. Additionally the staff, collections, exhibits, toilets, cleanliness, easy parking and the proximity of the coffee shop/restaurant all lead to a good experience. Although...More

Interesting museum. Not very large but plenty of things to look at. You can also get an idea of how heavy some of the protective armour the army wear. The staff were very friendly and happy to help.

I live locally but have never visited in the past. Took a friend very interested in military history and both of us were very impressed. Enough to keep you interested for at least 2 hours and possibly more. Waterloo model is excellent
