  • Great value. Very spacious so lots of walking. But actual museum is modern and has plenty of seats to take a rest. Picnic tables provided and an excellent cafe too. Good for wheelchairs and buggies as everything flat apart from the museum which is still wheelchair friendly. Plenty of toilets, a large car park and a good play area for the kids make a it a great day out for the family.
  • Such an important place to visit. It shows the pride and character of the region at its best. The disasters that befell these brave souls never stopped them and this place does them justice. It was a great place for us and the children to visit with enough information and activities to keep all entertained. Not just the museum, but even the cafe were impressive, with staff more than willing to help with anything you needed.
