I am a fan of anything with free admission (though you can make a donation). There was an impressive display of weapons from all different time periods and cultures which was... More

Excellent Museum well worth a long visit. Do take your own food to eat in the picnic area, as there own caterers can't be bothered with having to serve you, or even talk to you. They are a far to busy talking to themselves and ignoring customers. Better still go to Pizza express just across the way, Excellent service and... More

A really interesting selection of artefacts presented really well. Lovely building and great facilities. Broad range of exhibits from early history to contemporary with everything in between. A bit awkward to get to though.

The little 'plays' and/or demonstrations are excellent for getting the kids attention [ and ours] and bring history to life. memorable ones included 'Claude Duval' the highwayman; the 'match girl'; and guns through the ages. We weren't sure if out grandchildren would be that interested [ we... More

Its free to get in which is always a bonus, and it was way bigger then expected. Very well lit displays and they also had a... More

Visited on a Friday afternoon with the hubby. Great collections of weapons. Really enjoyed the Asian exhibits. Can imagine kids would have fun as well. Oh, and it's FREE. Worth a visit.

The best thing of all is that this museum is free to get in! We got a taxi from our hotel and the first thing we saw when we stepped out of the car was Batman's Batmobile!! Our children (9 and 6) were beside themselves! As we approached the entrance we were confronted by two stormtroopers and Bobafet!! My husband... More
