“Overpriced for what it is!”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

£10 per adult is over reaching. My boyfriend finds all this sort of thing fascinating, and i suggested it when the weather was poor. We were round the whole thing very quickly, and nearly everything (interactive zones) were broken. He wasn't impressed with what they had on offer and was very disappointed, and said it certainly was not worth ten pounds per adult.

“A PLEASANT COUPLE OF HOURS”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

We hadn,t visited here since it was first opened and found it to be a very pleasant experience.
The displays were well set out and the video was very well done,I feel that if one has the time it could be coupled with a visit to the Submarine Museum which would then be a great day out.

“Fascinating and well presented museum”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

This museum is full of beautifully presented material. The old powder vaults are stunning. The staff are only too pleased to assist and are, clearly, very knowledgeable. You need a good few hours to really appreciate the huge effort that has been put into this place. There are plenty of interactive displays and activities for all ages. A very enjoyable visit.
