Free to enter with paid parking 2 mins away. The exhibition is extensive and fantastic but we prefer more hands on museums (understand that may be tough with guns and swords). Signs when you are there could be better though. Worth a visit

Wonderful place for folks of all ages. Doesn't matter if your a hard core history buff or just curious. Great events and exhibits for all ages. Kid friendly and you can get there via foot car or my personal favourite, water taxi!

I visited this please with my kids and the whole family loved it. There is many interesting things to do. My favourite part was the lord of the rings swords. Entry is free. 😁 Only negativum is the gift shop which is very expensive.

Amazing amount of information and detail to see. The displays are brilliantly constructed. Interaction and videos we could have spent days here. But as entrance is Free you can come back anytime for more.

This is one interesting museum. Every floor holds something that will grab your attention. Not just war, but history, hunting, culture, manufacturing and geography are all relevant subjects that are covered. The staff we encountered were also brilliant. Just go!!

It was the first time I'd been here and it was amazing, completely different to what I expected. We saw a fencing demonstration based on a fight between two french men in 1898. An amazing display of armours from around the country. The medieval and...More
