My son (8) and 1 love this type of place and dragged the girls along too. I wasn’t expecting much tbh but I was really surprised at the range and quality of this collection. The museum itself feels like is in the middle of nowhere...More

Really enjoyed our time here, the helpful staff and tea in enamel cups from the NAAFI van just added to the experience. So much to see here and so atmospheric.
