After attending the 1940’s event on Sunday, I really did enjoy the whole event. The gin bar was amazing and the staff there was so lovely and helpful. Especially Tim as he was so full of beans. I would highly recommend the events there.

A large and impressive sight that will take a lot of time to explore. We went when there was a 1940’s weekend. The museum was full of re-enactors and members of the public that also dressed in theme. It was difficult to tell them apart....More

Not greeted with a smile or advice on whether there was a map etc, we found it was a surprisingly good and full day out. School parties tainted the day a little but you can't go to any museum on a weekday without encountering them....More

First time at the 1040 evening, what a great time had by all. Though the queue for the FISH & CHIPS an hour long well worth it. The D Day Darlings was fantastic & all the people who turned up dressed for the occasion what...More

We attended the 1940s weekend as re-enactors. It is a fantastic place even when there is not an event, but the 1940s weekend brought the whole place back to the war years and the atmosphere was electric. Book early for events as they are sold...More

The canal boat ride is extra because it's actually part of the museum (?) next door, not the BCLM. We sat down in a number of places (I'm disabled), but just benches, not picnic tables; however, there don't seem to be any... More
