This was an excellent museum giving you a taste of what life at home would have be line on the home front during WWII. They have an excellent collection of items from that time in history and good signage describing what you're looking at and how it was important in the daily lives of people in the UK during wartime....

If you enjoy modern history or like me ex forces, then you will enjoy this. The guys here really know their stuff and will answer any questions. There is a lot packed into this small space

Probably just me, but it was not quite what I expected. Only a small museum and I did enjoy looking round some of the exhibitions but not really my thing. Very nice man on the desk though.

a small museum but cheap at just under £4 each, it was very interesting and well worth a visit. There is a little shop at the end for war souveniers.

From receiving the authentic world war II torch, you start your journey back in time, from Chamberlain's moving speech announcing the start of the world war II, to the style of clothing, food restrictions, everyday household implements, toys & games, to all the various jobs carried out by civilians. The lighting in this museum helped the authenticity of the whole... More

It is a hidden gem, great if you want to shelter from the rain for an hour. Nice little history lesson and very inexpensive at less than £10 for 2 adults and 1 child.

It's tucked away down a side street so can understand that it can easily be missed it needs better sign posting. The chap on entry was very welcoming we were supplied with... More

Small, and modestly priced, but full of period goodies and with a wonderful atmosphere, even to the cat asleep on a chair! Well worth a visit.

We had to look for it, as it's tucked away in a little back street. Could be quite difficult to find, but once we got there, what a lovely little experience it was, you are handed an old military torch and pointed in the right direction, walking through the first door, you are thrown back in time, into a quaint...
