Excellent museum - plenty to see and read (if anything, perhaps a little too 'wordy' in places). Lots of firepower from Roman Britain to the present day. Uniforms to try on, films to watch, all shapes and sizes of weapons and vehicles - something for everyone. The Museum is situated in the former historic Woolwich Arsenal and the building itself was once part of the Royal Laboratory Department, making ammunition. The cafe is great, with good food and welcoming, friendly staff. For those who are interested, don't forget the link with the Arsenal Football Club!

This museum is situated in the old historic Royal arsenal in Woolwich. There is an entrance charge but the tickeet can be used on repeat visits within a 12 month period. It is a museum worth a second visit. The main museum is on two floors. There are many types of atillary guns and upstairs there is history of the Royal Artillary and the Royal arsenal. Whilst some more information would be useful on the ground floor exibits upstairs the information is comprehensive. On my visit there was an additional tour of the larger equipment held in another building. There is a shop and cafe on site. The guides and members of staff were friendly and were able to provide information. .

I took my 9 and 12 year old boys (and four month old boy!) and boy did they enjoy it! Especially my 9 year old, he was in total awe of all the weapons, uniform, vehicles etc. especially being able to put uniform on! We all loved the film showing even making us all jump. We were there for about three hours in total, although would've been longer if the boys could get in the play bit but if was quite busy being half term and big groups going in, but they did get a go earlier on in our visit but me being mum said 'we'll come back later for a longer go'! Oops! Anyway thoroughly recommend! Also the gift shop is quite reasonably priced which is a plus! Will def be going back but perhaps incorporating a go on the Thames clipper which stops right by the museum. Oh and parking is plentiful in the pay and display which again is reasonably priced.
