Visited with our 10 year old in October break. Great covid measures in place and well organised. One of the staff was great and took time to speak to my daughter about the boats as she is studying Titanic at school.

We booked to a time slot for the red arrows flight simulator and paid online but you did need to book an entry due to covid restrictions and limited numbers in places. We did actually arrive early and they said that as there was not many booked in that we could come in and start around the museum and make our way back to the red arrows flight simulator at our alloted time, it was only about 20 mins or so early, they said had they not got people booked for the simulator they would of been able to let us go into that when we arrived but they couldnt. We said we were very appreciative that they had allowed us in early as we had tried to work out a time as we had booked to go around the castle and this hadnt taken us as long as we had anticipated so were at a loose end. It is quite a large and versatile museum to look around and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We also really enjoyed the red arrows simulator too having seen then many times perform at various air shows since a child, it was quite something to experience what it is like for the pilot.

Does what it says on the tin. Incredible place to visit especially with kids and young teens. Always something new each time I've visited. Staff are helpful and friendly. The experience has never let me down. Also, never heard a bad review on the place.

Really good displays of life through the ages. Lots of exhibits and information well laid out. Unfortunate that some were not available because of the COVID pandemic. Parking next to the museum and only 80p an hour, so reasonable for town centre. Would recommend a visit. Free entry although I did give a donation towards running costs.
