A great museum to get an insight and experience of the 1st World War, including walking in a trench system and seeing what life was like in a bunker complex. The personal audio guide is a great way of finding out about the exhibits and...More

Great museum. Great experience to walk in the underground trench system. You’re given an audio device to get all the info on the displays. A truly humbling experience to imagine what the heroes endured.

Not our first visit here but well worth a return. Great items in the museum and the recreation of life underground and the trenches in the grounds offers an insight into life during that time. Well worth a visit.

We planned a visit here and it was much better than expected. Sometimes these places can be less interesting for a 13 year old but this had interactive items, a fab audio commentary which you took with you the whole way. We spent a good...More
