Took the opportunity during the holidays to take two kids (aged 6 boy and 7 girl). The Volunteer Cadets, not actually Marines but very enthusiastic, were running a taster session and had the kids "cracking phys". This was a good warm up session followed by some runs over the assault course. The smallest kid was aged 4 and the oldest was teetering on being a teenager. The kids thoroughly enjoyed it.
Inside, the museum brings 350 years of Royal Marines history to your fingertips. Lots of little stories to read bringing individuals to life whilst showing off some impressive personal and collective awards gained over the years. There are lots of multimedia exhibits so it is not all reading. The exhibitions bring the RM story right up to date and includes what the guys do nowadays. It is easy to see why these guys are considered the best in the British Armed Forces (outside of Special Forces).
The entry fee was minimal and the small cafe was very reasonably priced.
