Called in again to War museum, Even recommended others (who thanked me) to visit. Mainly same displays but if you have never been get yourself there. Good displays, knowledgeable, friendly volunteers. Good anytime but on a rainy day Fantastic.

Helpful knowledgable volunteers who new about the displays as well as the local area. Dvd also explains history further. Free which is always a bonus.
