  • Brilliant museum, super interesting for all the family and was an excellent start to our morning. Thoroughly recommend  more »
  • There is a lot here, relics of the minutiae, uniforms, weaponry, all manner of things, set out in the tunnel right beside the great church, and leading to a remarkable and beautiful garden  more »
  • Perfect for our family. Good displays and pictures occupy children whilst adults read more. Also, it's a fairly small museum so we got through in an hour before children got bored.
  • Very interesting and its all translated into english. Lots of interesting objects and set-ups. However it is in tunnels so if you have claustrophobia or dont like tunnels then this is probably not for you.
