Warm welcome, and personal service throughout. Curators have a thorough knowledge of their subject and the items in the exhibits. Very helpful with our personal areas of research. Well worth visiting.

When I went there about four years(2012) ago, it was fantastic. Very interesting and children friendly. It has since closed and is in the process of moving to Wiltshire

An excellent display, but unfortunately they have moved away. My husband who was in REME was fascinated with all the displays, and I found the vehicles interesting.
