Fantastic museum charting all the key events of world war 2. Set aside a good few hours to take it all in as it's huge.

As travelingjohn123 says, but I would advise buying your tickets on line beforehand to make sure you can get into the museum, they only have a few for sale, on a turn up on the day basis.overall this is a must visit
