  • What a little gem of a place. We went 3 adults and 3 kids plus 2 dogs. The staff was really friendly and knowledgeable. They demonstrated a few guns and the kids were able to have a feel of them. The place was just full of interesting information and it was good to read and understand what our grandparents lived through. There was a opportunity to also shoot a pellet gun at a target range which was good fun. The guy running that was very encouraging with the kids and made it fun and safe. We would definitely come back as all the kids enjoyed it and said they would come back.
  • Myself and my boyfriend visited the museum today, was a lovely experience. Staff were very friendly, anything you wanted to know you can ask. Museum was very interesting, we are from London and the museum was better than London's biggest attraction the Imperial War Museum. It had so much more in this museum. There was a shooting range which we used and also they have tanks you can ride in for an additional fee. Lovely cafe too, food was freshly cooked. Overall a lovely experience and museum. Thank you =)
