Well this was the last museum we visited and by far the best, uniforms, weapons, scenes were fantastic. The cellar/bunker experience was brilliant and well worth a visit. There was lots to see and very informative. Reasonable cost for entry

What can I say, the 101 is an amazing outfit. These guys are real warriors! What a treasure to see how these guys accomplished what they did with the basic supplies and equipment. 101 you have my respect.

This museum was a little bit away from McAuliffe Square, but worth going to. Lots of memorabilia, some repetitive, from the battle and the soldiers who fought in it. Has some nice, full scale reproductions of scenes from the battle to include an air raid...More

Great museum, the bomb shelter was the best part of it! The museum is on 3 floors and in the basement.
