“Waste of money and time !!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

What a terrible museum ........... I have been to lots of military museums and this has to be the worst. Where to start !!! Price £28 for a family ticket and we where only in museum for 40 mins not exactly value for money. Exhibits ... not great most covered in signs telling you not to touch or climb.. but my biggest problem is the fact most exhibits are Airfix models and not very good ones !!
Please don't waste your money going here.

“Loads of military vehicles”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

We visitied this museum with young children while visiting the area. My children loved the military vehicle ride and the tank demonstration. It is only half a day visit especially with children.

“Military weekend in June is when to go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

Every year in June Muckleburgh have a military weekend with static displays, re-enactors and exhibits driving around the field, I'm frequently surprised by the lower turn-out.
Muckleburgh is a great little museum, though not actually that little! It is packed to the rafters with vehicles and equipment and has an ongoing programme of restoration which you can see as you drive in.
The entrance fee is very reasonable and for a nominal charge you can have a ride round the coast on the back of a truck, although you may end up with whiplash!!
The icing on the cake (literally!) is the cafeteria, very reasonable, home-cooked food, if you miss out on the apple pie, you may as weel throw yourself off the cliff,there's no longer a reason to live!
I've been to Muckleburgh on a few occasions, I work with a lot of WW2 veterans and it gives me an insight, but I understand that walking around a building looking at silent monsters isnt for everyone, but you shouldn't miss the weekend!
There's no great hoik of the price, to see these 70 odd year old machines roar into life is such a testament to the dedication of the staff and volunteers it shouldn't go unmissed. My grand-daughter loves it and even my Mrs enjoys it! We always wonder why more people don't go, show some support for your local attraction, please!!

“Pristine gathering of military hardware”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

I had been intending to visit this museum for some time. I was not disappointed. It is set out on high ground very near the coast.
The collection comprises an impressive number of military vehicles - tanks, artillery, APCs, trucks and smaller items all inside. In addition there are marvellous displays of model ships - both naval and merchant types. The first rooms are given over to the story of the site (originally Weybourne Camp), a history of the West Norfolk Militia, lots of reminiscences of men and women who served at the anti-aircraft training establishemnet that it was its main purpose. There are lots of photos and other artefacts.
There is a spacious cafe with the sort of food that will appeal to squaddies.
There are some exhibits outside and these are not in such a satisfactory state of repair: an original Harrier GR1, a Thunderbird missile battery and a V1 (doodlebug) on its launch platform. A radio hut can be visited at certain times. Outside displays take place on certain days. You can drive a tank for a large fee.
Generally this is fine museum, well organised and beautifully maintained.
