As we were staying in Braintree we thought of visiting this museum on our way up from home. What a collection of memorabilia and privately owned. It's situated over three floors and the floor dedicated to Mason and his wife who were special forces spies is unbelievable. I did not know about him or his wife and even to this... More

We were really impressed with this museum, and spent a good three hours looking round. Its located within an industrial estate and the only way you'd know it wasn't just another industrial unit is the armoured vehicles parked outside, including a Chieftain tank! Ranging from ancient armour to the latest equipment, it's amazing that so much is crammed into the... More

We have been meaning to visit this museum for sometime and a wet October afternoon in the area gave us a good opportunity. This is a little gem with a great selection of military items from so many different periods of history. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. The display on Peter Mason was really interesting with so many... More

What a little treasure, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the museum. The children got to try on some army uniform and hats. We particularly found Captin Peter Mason and 007 interesting the children loved looking at the spy technology. The information supplied and shown was fascinating. Staff were very helpful and passionate about the museum and it's content.

I looked on TripAdvisor for days out in Essex and this museum was rated number two. I looked at the various pictures, and had a look on Google Earth and wasn't that impressed. But we went any way as an excuse to have a lunch in the country. Wow! If you have any interest in swords, guns, bombs, spys or... More

Although small, this museum has such a vast collection of interesting exhibits you could spend quite a few hours here. We were lucky that no many people were there and we got to see everything in our own time. There is a great collection of guns and swords. Also uniforms and military paraphanalia. I was pleasently surprised and would definetely... More
