What a brilliant museum!! Took my two sons who had a fabulous day, you are welcomed with great resources and staff!! The food from the cafe is very good quality and the gift shop has something for all budgets. Tickets last all year and we will definitely be returning as we were so excited to see everything we couldn’t take in much of the educational information. Highly recommended and dogs are welcomed too!! A day out not to be missed!
Very interesting place with aircraft from both world wars and the Falklands war. Museum staff friendly and knowledgeable. Various displays in the mizzen huts. We spent a good 2hours looking round and could have spent a lot longer. All for £12 good value for money. Not to mention you can also take your dog.
