The Soldiers of Gloucester Museum has been superbly designed. If you follow the rooms in their proper order then you will travel from the past to the present, the chronology of war. Of course we went up in the lift - it's small but large enough for a wheelchair (without the carer) - and took the wrong turning so we ended up going from present to past. It didn't make any difference as far as our enjoyment was concerned (we didn't know until afterwards that we had gone round backwards). There is a superb mock-up of a tank encampment and several excellent mannequins in full uniform from various eras of war.
From the outside this looks like a small shop of memorabilia, with the emphasis on small. Indeed once you enter the store you do begin to wonder where the museum actually is and how large it is. Actually this is a Tardis-like building; small on the outside and amazing on the inside, full of wonder and filled with man's hope for peace in the only way man knows how to try for it - war!
