My wife, my 9yr old son and I visited as part of a day out in Gloucester and thoroughly enjoyed this museum. It's not gimmicky, nor is it filled with children's activities, it just educates visitors in many aspects of historical interest - including limited but still very significant exhibitions including firearms and uniforms. There are many displays of medals along with descriptions of their issue. However we found that with no corresponding catalogue or other reference to identify the various types of medals on display we hadn't a clue of their respective significance other than to appreciate the history behind them. The entire museum is surprisingly larger than you think whilst having refreshments in the tea room at ground floor level, so overall it's a very good place to visit. Entrance prices are pretty good also, as are items in the gift shop. Would definitely visit again and would recommend to anyone (disabled lift is available also).
