A museum of combat with an incredible range of objects including vehicles, clothing, and other artifacts from a wide range of conflicts. I was fortunate to be visiting with someone who knew about the implications of tanks having straight or sloping sides to their turrets!...More

This "museum" is one of a kind but it is not clinically clean and not laid out in any sort of regimental order. While not being able to actually touch many of the exhibits you do get up close and personal to most of them....More

The quite large but also dusty collection unfortunately misses a chronological or thematic structure. Many exhibits also lacked of more accurate information about the origin and technical specifications etc. For the shown too expensive.

Set in the middle of no where but well worth a visit. Crammed from wall to wall with exhibits. Something for everyone

When working I would take time out bto visit,in the early days it was fun but much of a mans collection ...now it is much more than a film set. Go see this it is well worth a detour and visit.

We visited last week and although you can only really spend a couple of hours here the collection is truly amazing and worth a look.
