“Excellent - and accurate”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

My wife thinks that this is the only military museum in the world in which I have not found a single inaccuracy, in the sections covering both the Royal Navy and the Army.

“simply beautiful”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

it was so incredible to visit this spot. Make sure you don't just see it on the outside. Our fist visit we never even realized how much is hidden behind the walls.

“better than last time”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

The museum is better organised than the last time I was there two years back, but they still have a little way to go finalising some exhibits I think.. Tourists should spend a little time here to grasp the history of the dockyard.

“Amusement”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

Really interesting house of historical interest and well worth the visit. Fully explains why a dockyard was established in this location and also charts it's development over a prolonged span of time . There are many charts and drawings depicting the expansion of the area.
