We managed to catch this place on a recent visit. Despite other reviews, their leaflet clearly states open Tuesdays and Wednesdays! I don't understand anyone expecting young children to have much interest. But for adults old enough to remember anything about the wars or subsequent events, or their parent stories thereof, it was utterley fascinating. An extremely wide-ranging collection of vehicles, weapons and all sorts of memorabilia. Sit in the Anderson shelter and be scared by the sound effects, references everywhere to the informative Guide Book (a bargain at £2 now being used by a teenager for a school project!). Displays of all sorts, lots of pictures. Read the tale of the vehicle commandered from the Falklands. Completely absorbing, much to my surprise. Could have spent a lot longer there. Incredible to have been collected mostly by just one man to fill three inter-connected quonset huts - who was very friendly and welcoming to us - maybe one gets what one gives? Strongly recommended :-)
