  • Great collection of armour & artillery from various eras. The highlight though was definitely the rifle range where (for an extra fee) I was able to live fire an SMLE 303 rifle from the Second World.....  more

  • The museum is amazing. The staff enthusiastic, knowledgeable and welcoming.. A huge range of well Preserved tanks most in working order and all with description of what tank is and where they were used. I saw something different each day I was there. 3 days in all. We went for Armour Fest which was fantastic and I am not into Tanks. The energy of the event was high. To see so many working tanks driving and taking excited passengers was a buzz. Well worth spending a few days at the event.
  • An amazing collection of military armour and artillery. Our boys enjoyed the opportunity to shoot some rifles at the shooting gallery. The collection of tanks from many countries is quite extensive. I really enjoyed the Ancient Rome exhibit it was very interesting and had lots of information about things that have come from the Romans. Well worth a visit.
