“Great value, enjoyable for a large age range, educational”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

Took two 7 year olds and spent a couple of hours here. Although they were not great at studying the information on various displays, there is a lot for the eye and lots of opportunities to get your hands on things such as communication systems, radios, see morse code machines, armoured vehicles etc right up close.
They have different events such as a treasure trail, so u need to check the website.
Something to do with the kids and the grandparents with a nice little cafe too and only 5 mins from junction 11 of M4

“Great fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

Been a couple of times now on a family event and children really enjoyed it. Food also good. Could do with few more shirts or similar for assault course as previous years there was not so much waiting around. Still enjoyed however and a good place to visit.

“Superb collection of military memorabilia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2012

Little-known military museum well worth a visit. Ideally, choose to visit on the annual open day when the whole garrison is free to visit.
