Fantastically detailed models and exhibits. Easy to spend a couple of hours here. It maybe a little on the pricey side for some, but the quality is very high.

This was an "Optional" for a conference I was attending. Unfortunately we only had 2 hours. I wish we had 4. The highlight for me was the Stalingrad Experience.

A fascinating afternoon spent at the WW1 and WW2 exhibitions. Extremely informative and well laid out displays. A great coffee spot to thaw out in as well.

A wonderful extensive historic display of planes, uniforms, medals and amazing memorabilia of both the first and second world wars. Recommend a visit and be prepared to spend about three hours. There is a cafe with adequate edibles for lunch or morning or afternoon teas.
