Just come home from a visit to the collection this afternoon. There are a lot of exhibits crammed into three hangers. This itself is ok, but everything in the collection is a bit dusty and dirty which was disappointing. Also there is limited information available on the exhibits which limits the value of seeing all the vehicles and artefacts. Some things do have some information which allows you to get some history, this would be great to see with all the items.
There are a few tanks, some of which saw action on D Day as well as numerous vehicle and attachments like big guns, floodlights, lots of emergency aid equipment and items from peoples homes during the second world war. You can also sit in a air raid shelter where you can experience the sounds of an air raid going on, which was amazing.
If you looked through some of the cabinets there is some amazing and significant items to see, including items from a Nazi concentration camp. As well some guns and knives, which you can only imagine their history.
More signage and giving everything a clean would make a massive improvement.
Although the price isn't too expensive, there was no option to return during the year, etc, this compared with other attractions does not represent good value for money. We planned to stay for the afternoon, but after going around twice we left, therefore we were only there an hour.
