Well worth a visit

A day out especially with "oldies" and "middle age children" (between 10 - 15). A good display well layed out

This takes you back to the aviation days of WW1 with detailed displays of aircraft, uniforms, weaponry and personal stories of those involved. Can be cold in winter so dress up warmly.

Have been to this Musem several times. It is very real and authentic. Very life like. Some of the artifacts are only found at this Heritage Centre. Informative tours; if that is your choice; The cafe has lovely coffee and food and staff that provide good service. Lovely peaceful outlook. Nice place to recommend to family and friends.

Have never had any thing here that I have been happy with. Very basic food, lack of variety and sadly not very nice.

A really interesting collection of World War 1 material presented brilliantly in large diorama style settings. All the models are on a human scale, looking very realistic as if you could step into each tableau.
