I have over the years visited many military museums, none of which elicited the evocative reaction this one caused. The steep downward tunnel into the air raid bubker was very a psychological trip in and of itself. And from then on it's a trip into the physical and emotional space of 1916. The artefacts are riviting as are the display vignettes which capture the horror as well as the attempts of the soldiers to create some semblance of normality in the tiny spaces in which they existed. the last 20 yds of the museum is an experiential learning moment, in the dark, encosed confines the simulated bombing above does at that point, feel very frightening. The gift shop is a wonderful space of treasures.
Oh, and when you come out, a moment or two away, is a grand bar, called the Highlander, a warm and friendly welcome awaits you there.
