We had only 3 hrs to tour both the WW1 & 2 exhibits and we knew as soon as we entered the WW1 ‘hangar’ that time was always going to be our enemy. The exhibits were simply amazing and placing them in action scene scenarios including mannequins, sound and light brought this aspect of the war to life. The guides were very informative and clearly knowledgeable on the subject matter and most importantly passionate! The descriptors at each exhibit were comprehensive leaving very few questions unanswered. Unfortunately we had to rush thru the WW2 hangar, finishing with the very depressing Siege of Leningrad sound n light show and a quick look at the Spitfire! The following day we met a fellow traveller, who also visited the Centre, who said he rated it at least the equal of the Smithsonian.
Sir Peter Jackson and the crew at Omaka have done a wonderful job and puts Blenheim on the world map!
