We decided to visit The Royal Marines museum in Southsea yesterday as a birthday treat for our son's 9th birthday... And have to say, we had a brilliant day.
The staff were amazing, friendly, knowledgeable and cheerful. The museum exhibits were hands on for the children and beautifully presented...the medal room was awesome.
The children really enjoyed trying on Marine costumes through the ages and handling the guns, under the supervision of one of the guides, who was fantastic with them.
The cafe was very reasonable and again excellent, friendly service...food was good too.
The children loved the assault course outside and spent over an hour playing on it.
We had to sign a consent form in order for children to do the assault course and because the staff noticed it was my son's birthday, they gave him a certificate at the end of the day stating that he had spent his birthday at The Royal Marines Museum...what a lovely unexpected touch.
We felt that this gem of an attraction is very understated, but so worth a visit. It was excellent value at £21.00 for the six of us. The staff should be highly commended for their friendliness and knowledge of a truly amazing institution.
