We took my Turkish father in law here. He does not speak English, but didn't need to really as the exibits speak for themselves. Brill for men if they like armour and guns!

“Definitive collection unrivalled anywhere else in UK”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Utterly compelling collection of killing paraphanelia from the dawns of time to the modern age.

So much to see that it is probably worth either spending a full day here of 2 half days to let your mind recover from the breadth and depth of the displays and collections.

What is so totally unbelievable is that this deifinitive collection is FREE to all.

So much to view and the artifacts were all so interesting. It takes a couple of hours to get through it all because there is so much,
