“Great place for all ages”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

My sister-in-law is a history teacher and has visited many, many museums, with her students tagging along, on school trips. This was her first time to the Royal Armouries (and without any tag alongs) and she couldn't believe the great (and free) experience that it offers. This gets five stars from us.

“A great visit.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

I had quite a long walk to get there, but was well worth the journey. It was free on entry and plenty of things to see and a few things that you can take part in. You could quite easily spend all day there if this is your interest!

“Amazing collection - more than just a load of old weapons”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

Great presentation of warfare and related arms and armour, even to me who is not into that stuff at all. The staircase with the Civil War breastplates is wonderful! Great friendly and very knowledgeable staff. Walking distance from town, canal and the shops!

“Fantastic Armour and Armoury”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

We were most impressed with the huge building that houses the Armoury - which was purpose built and shows everything to the best advantage. a lot of the items used to be housed in the Tower of London. Its the most fascinating place to visit and so much also to learn from the inlay on rifles through to Armour. so worth a visit

“Fantastic and free”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

My grandchildren love visiting the armouries, especially my grandson who loves to see the swords and guns. It's free to enter and fascinating for the kids.
