We found this little gem in a side street. It is well maintained and full of interest for all generations. We all need to be reminded what life was like in the 1940 s and1950 s.

Having been brought up in a town that suffered 85% damage during the May Blitz, this was a reminder of what my mother went through. It should be compulsary for all school children.

Hidden away in a back alley, you are transported back to the 1940s. The announcement of war through to all the preparations householders needed to make, everything is portrayed in a wholly immersive experience. Definitely recommended!

We have always wanted to pop into this museum should we visit on a wet day. Recently due to the high wind and snow we managed to visit. £3.50 entry is a modest fee to pay and the artifacts and displays are excellently put together....More
