  • Great family day out - plenty to see and loads of room to run about. Interesting museum , but also a good place to explore with tunnels and ramparts. Museum is free and parking only £3 for the day. Cafe is reasonably priced for drinks and snacks. Contains some fascinating objects if you are into military history, or just like guns. Family friendly, but plenty for the history buff. Events such as cannon firing are regular, but check the website.
  • Our experience was on a very, very , wet Tuesday. Parking was easy, the entrance just a short walk. Staff were friendly and welcomed us in. The cafe was busy, the experience is very hands on. Interative, with games, puzzles , all displays well written too. As you learn about the history behind the construction, with displays of everyday life for those who served within its walls. This was my second visit and i intend to go again, with intentions of navigating the great spaces and tunnels with one of the tour guides. Hope this helps.
