Excellent day out for free. Very Interesting especially the top floor with all of the policing info over the years.

All the tools you need for hunting and killing Men or Animals, Knights and Kings in arm'our . Just heard a young English Prince talk of Killing people in Afghanistan, Maybe someday is helicopter will be on display here.Looking forward to my next visit.

I must admit, I do normally like this type of thing to be housed in the correct settings, which also give you the ambiance of the time etc. But this collection is housed in a very modern museum, which for me let it down a bit, but having said that, it was a fantastic collection and presented in a very good way, and best of all it was free. I can recommend, it is also very good for the disabled.

From the moment you walk towards to you know you're in for something special and different.

Stunning structure, modern architecture, centrally located, parking a penny's throw away, huge grand entrance Indiana Jones style!

Superb displays, richness of information, displays on a grand scale, the past brought to life, the treasures that would have been lost and forgotten kept in pride, talks and walks.

A well recommended day out. We were a family of mum, dad and our 2 teens (18 year and 15 year old).

Fantastic museum.
Is what it says, a museum about weapons, but it has talks, shows and presentations.
Best things, elephant armour and duck cannon.
