A really excellent place to view so many exhibits. A vast array of military equipment exhibited over many floors. Strangely not very well known which means that you can have the entire place to yourself. Entry fee was ridiculously low .. €2 or €3. There...More

Huge exhibition, with big exhibits, like helicopters, submarines, tanks. Plus, lots of details with insides from tehnical stuff, engines and others. And only for 3 euro. Impressive for a girl

Not exactly a museum as aimed at those interested in military technology as applied rather than just the vehicle or equipment. Many of the exhibits are cutaway to enable close scrutiny, a Leopard has been cut in half lengthwise. Although primarily Army equipment there are...More

There are very small lockers that will hold a small bag or backpack. Bags are not allowed inside the museum. If I remember correctly the lockers required a 1 euro coin.
