We visited at 4.00 on a Friday afternoon, only 30 minutes before they were due to close, but we were warmly welcomed and were encouraged to linger as long as we wanted. Simon is a mine of fascinating stories and information, and we could really have stayed there for hours! Very interesting and un-museum-y - difficult to describe so you... More

Simon is a mine of information, some of it relevant, all of it diverting. Hearty congratulations to all involved.

I found The Tin Shed very interesting, inventive & creative. Historically correct. Encouraging learning for children & adults to have a better understanding of War by, 'bringing the experience' to life. Simon positively encouraged questions & is passionate a about his Museum. This is certainly not a passive, dead experience. Not to be missed. &, look out for forthcoming events... More

A small museum full of interesting WW11 items - we particularly liked the photographs, cameras and the stories that accompanied them. Seimon had many intriguing and fascinating tales to tell. Great value.

Seimon was so friendly and informative, as were all the other members of the team. As two "seniors", many of the items brought back fond childhood memories.

It's difficult to describe this World War Plus museum! It's quite different from what you might expect, and perhaps 'experience' is a better description than 'museum'!There are no explanatory texts to read, but Simon et al are on hand to explain everything and answer questions. I hope it will never stop being the 'work in progress' it clearly delights in... More

We went to the tin shed last week and it was great. The gent there knew all about everything and chatted to us about the fascinating museum, don't be fooled by the outside it is a really interesting place which tells the stories of the first and second wars in imitate detail well worth the paltry price of entry.
