“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

We went here in August and can recommend it as a day out for all the family. Most interesting and informative. The cafe serves good quality food at very reasonable prices.

“Hooray for Halloween sleepover”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

Thanks to all the team at Explosion! for the Halloween Sleepover event held in the Grand Battery. We were well fed, watered and richly entertained with the mask-making, dream catcher weaving, pumpkin carving, scary ghost stories in the haunted buildings and film show. I know how much work goes into organising one-off events such as this and all the staff really got into the 'spirit' of the occasion. I was expecting needing to wear layers of clothing with lots of blankets but the Battery was as warm as toast. Hope to be back next year with a larger party.

Very enthusiastic gentleman volunteer on reception who was very knowledgable about the museum and its contents. Could done with him taking us around.

Lots to see and look at.

Cafe done as a old fashioned theme with items to look at on the walls. could priced snacks.
Well worth another trip to learn more about the place.

Reviewed October 8, 2013

Sorry about that title, couldn't resist it. Very enjoyable visit and interesting to say the least. Not cheap, as most of these trips are, but worth the effort.
