This is a superb collection, ranging from pole arms to the modern armaments. The staff are helpful and friendly, and the layout is well thought out and simple to follow. Labelling is clear and easy to read, and I particularly like the fact that it does not include replicas and reproductions, displaying only original items. The original 'cockleshell' folding canoe...

I live in same road as this museum but never got round to going but really should have gone sooner as was very informative, well laid out and some very good exhibits. Staff was very friendly. My 5 year old son loved it in there and kept asking me loads of questions about what we see and I could answer... More

I took my boys to the museum last year and I have to say it is fantastic, what a great military collection and particularly fascinating was the spy related displays. I give the museum 5 stars! More people need to know about this museum.

This is a fantastic place to see all militaria from ancient swords and pikes to modern day weaponry. There is a section dedicated to the original 'James Bond' who was a man named Mason, Ian Fleming was his operator during and after the second world war. This is the man who dressed as a KGB officer and walked into the... More

We have lived in Essex for over 30 years but have never been here before. We spent hours at the most amazing walk through military history you can imagine. From the moment you arrive, the friendly staff are welcoming and helpful. The museum is well laid out and can cater for all ages. We really enjoyed the experience and cannot... More

I've lived in Maldon now for a few years and visited the Museum for the first time last month. What a surprise! It's got everything, its like the wardrobe, doesn't look much on the outside, although a couple of tanks and a Bloodhound(?) missile battery seem a bit quirky and out of place on a business park! But go inside... More

We were in Maldon for the day & my wife found this museum for us to visit. My only regret is we didn't go there earlier, we had 1 & 1/2 hours there but needed more. It's well laid out. An amazing collection in such a hidden location. There are a number of highlights including the fascinating section on a... More

I have lived in the area for 28 years and I have known about this place for a while but haven't been before. Myself and a friend decided one day to check it out and what a surprise we got. This really is a well thought out, informative, exciting place to visit. We were incredibly impressed and I would recommend... More

I spend yesterday morning with my son and another teenage lad, touring this local museum. I think it's fair to say we were all totally absorbed with the tales of survival and subtifuge surrounding the exhibits. I think a tour of this attraction should be on the national curriculum of all history lessons as seeing the uniforms, weapons, photographs etc,... More
