Spent an hour walking around a very interesting museum. Some good and informative displays, a look back on military history. What really brings it home is some of the exhibits from recent conflicts. Have a look, it's worth it.

The entrance to this museum gives no indication of what is below stairs. One of most immaculately presented Museum I have seen. The visit is moving by it's very nature, and the living wall with is stories told in dialect, are compelling. The displays are...More

Having undergone a total make over this museum is very modern in its approach to displays and story lines of the British Army, well worth the visit if you are a military buff.
