“Priddy hard to beat”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Sorry about that title, couldn't resist it. Very enjoyable visit and interesting to say the least. Not cheap, as most of these trips are, but worth the effort.

“A explosive day that will blow your mind.”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

It is a cheap place to visit within a convenient location opposite Portsmouth Harbour where you could see the ships of the British Navy; or what's left of it.
It is very interactive and has a rat that you need to find so you could win a prize, perfect for toddlers.
It know's the customers they are catering for and sometimes operate ghost walks which i would love to go on.
A very fun day indeed and very interactive.

“Wedding Venue”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

Would never have imagined the museum to have made a good wedding venue, but it was great. Part of the museum was made into an area where the wedding took place and while we were outside having the photos done the inside was being transformed into a dining and evening disco area! The staff were really accommodating! Fab day!

“Pretty dull and pretty expensive.”
Reviewed 21 September 2013 via mobile

It was a toss up between here and the submarine museum, and boy did we get it wrong. Found it to be badly overpriced and really uninteresting. There isn't much to keep the children occupied and the acoustics at the cinema display are poor- so much so that it is difficult to decipher just what is being said. The price of the ticket means you can go back as much as you wish for a year, but to be honest, I will be passing on that particular opportunity.
