This is one of the best museums I have visited, could easily spend hours here, the museum is quite a walk from the airport and poorly signposted but apart from that it's a really must see and certainly worth every penny of the £6

Do not miss this museum. Easy to get to by bus. Such and interesting and personal collection amassed by one man. Well presented. Spend time reading and absorbing the history of an occupied piece of UK.

This is an amazing and very comprehensive museum, painstakingly detailed. To make the most of it you need at least two visits. There is a vast amount of artifacts, both general and personal including original letters, all beautifully displayed. Not to be missed!
