Owner description: Housed within the buildings and grounds of a former Prisoner of War camp, a visit to this unique museum will take you back to wartime Britain. Experience the sights, sounds and even smells of life on both the Home Front and the Front Line.

I believe this a unique museum. I learnt on our visit that the museum wouldn't exist had the land owner gone along with his first plan of creating a factory making crisps! But an encounter between the owner and three former POWs changed all that and created what we see now. Phew. There's an awful lot to see and take in and if you wanted to take everything in then devote a full day. It's chock full of information about WWII in all aspects but also includes WW1 and latter-day conflicts as well as how it was as POW camp. Lots of interesting detail, exhibits, recreations and a good NAAFI style canteen to boot. But you don't have to read every word on every display to gain a sense of each themed hut. Note that if the weather's cold and in particularly drafty, you'll feel it in the huts. But hey, it was a POW camp after all..

It's a interesting place to visit with lots of tanks,trucks and guns!

But there is a lot to read with nearly 30 cabins all full of facts, leave plenty of time to see it all.

Overall a interesting place to visit which anyone of any age will like.

Visited the camp with my two teenage daughters and had a very enjoyable afternoon. A very well kept & maintained site with a good canteen with lots of choice. The huts (about 30) house different subjects with levels of information to suit everybody. A good value day out.

Really interesting exhibits, really enjoyed wandering in and out of all the huts. The kids got nervous in some of the darker exhibits - but it does warn you about adjusting your eyes - and on reflection I don't think they were really scared as they asked to visit the Blitz one twice.
The giftshop was great for the kids - lots of things under £2 - bullet keyrings anyone? There was also an outdoor play area. An enjoyable few house - oh and try to see the puppet show - It's great. I think it would be better for age 8+ children, I can't imagine infants understanding it. My kids thought it was great (10 & 9).
