This is a great looking, very modern museum but there's really not an awful lot on display. Given the range of units it purports to represent, you would have expected there to be many more artifacts available. Unfortunately it's afflicted with the curse of so many modern military museums - too much interactivity for the casual/younger visitor at the expense of grown-up history for the enthusiast. As entry is combined with the rest of the castle complex, it's a very expensive visit.

Not a big museum but packed with information on the armed services. The displays of medals for gallantry are quite humbling and makes you appreciate the sacrifice and bravery of these people. Well worth a visit.

Very interesting exhibit with lots of information. I liked how it was displayed and that you followed a timeline up to modern day of the Welsh military. An area for children (or childish adults) to dress up too! The only reason we gave 4* rather than 5 was because we were not informed that there was a talk going on when we arrived. When we left the exhibit a board had now been placed saying there was a talk happening which had already started. We would have been very interested in hearing it.
