Visited the museum with 2 adults and 2 boys, enjoyed the experience , the exhibits are interesting for adults and children. The whole of Arborfield is going to be re developed soon , so visit just in case the museum has to move.

Perhaps a bit biased as ex REME, the museum is well laid out with ample exhibits both of military armour and modern missiles. By the far the best are the art exhibits specially of Baghdad. The tracked vehicle/ helicopter room is a must to see especially for the small ones you have to go. But don't delay only another year.

I've been meaning to visit the REME museun for some time and finally got around to it, now I'm cross that we haven't been before!! I took two 6 year old girls and two eight year old boys and they loved it. They made parachutes, did junk modelling, made little paper helicopters, challenged the chocolate machine, and added their stamp to some "modern art". They loved using the field telephones, and were entranced by the A-Z hunt. What an amazing place!! Total entry cost for the 5 of us was £15 - bargain. The coffee shop was good value too, with generous slices of homemade cake for £1.50-£1.70. Unfortunately we weren't able to make it on the Wednesday for the mini assault course, led by real soldiers, but I suspect we will be back in October half term so try that out...

We took our 9 year old here and he loved it. It is full of different things to see and do, children can do a quiz as they go round, it's very reasonable to get in. A lovely place to spend a few hours.
Only :-( was that there was no Tank, which is apparently important for a 9 year old boy.

Forty years to the day I returned to the REME guardroom now used as the cafe and shop for the museum .This is a top class museum well laid out with plenty of activities to keep the kids amused.There are a wide range of vehicles on display lots of audio /visual items and a large range of hands on stuff .As pensioners my wife and I decided not to try out the assault course but it did look great fun.This is a great place for ex REME personnel to spend a day and brought back lots of memories
