This museum has one of the best collections of armour and combat history I have ever seen. From displays to artwork to simulators, it was wonderful. We easily spent 3 hours, checking out all floors and watching some storytelling on the history.

This was a great way to spend a few hours. My teenage children really enjoyed it and found it interesting...and so did I. Well laid out and accessible. Very impressive building. Good museum shop as well for a range of things to buy from pocket money toys through to the more serious stuff for enthusiasts. Bring your own food as... More

A great day out for children of all ages (mine 11 & 15). Free to entry, I would have been happy to pay! Kids particularly enjoyed having a go of the crossbow and at £3 was great value!
