Visted from Germany, from we live in Hamburg. Made to felt very welcome as many in our party didn´t speak very well English. My father was in the German equivalent Artillery Regiment so he was very happy to see the other building that the tour guild took us to. He served with British in Nato forces so used some of...

Really good museum, tucked away behind all the building works for cross rail. Entrance fee was a little bit expensive. Really good coffee in the cafe, definitely worth having. Displays very interesting though more interactive ones would have enhanced the experience. Definitely worth visiting.

Fascinating museum and very informative and helpful guides. Brilliant to see that a place so associated with Woolwich Arsenal is to be found on site but a shame it is not more widely known. Excellently presented and with plenty of engaging facts to be learnt.

This place is away from London's main tourist areas but anyone interested in British military history should visit. It is easy to get to by public transport and the entry charge is reasonable. There is a good on-site café. I have been here twice now and don't agree that it should be relocated from London. Unfortunately too many people have... More

Just returned from taking 10 eleven-year-olds for my son's birthday party... quite simply, one of the best parties ever. Thanks to Rachel and Carl for making it so special. A varied and exciting two hours of drilling, beasting, firing, bungeeing and fun. Food was fab, too. Looked around the museum afterwards which added to the experience. Highly recommended.

Took my 9 year old son to this museum today, was not expecting too much as had not heard about it before yesterday. To get to from the DLR at Woolwich Arsenal station was only a 5 minute walk . When we got there and brought our very reasonable entry tickets (£5.50 for adults and £2.50 for children) I asked... More

Noticed the museum is due to close and move to Larkhill at some point in the not too distant future and so made the effort to visit now. The area is already in the middle of a "regeneration" and no doubt developers are itching to get their grubby hands on the site. It's a 5min walk from Woolwich Arsenal station... More
