Excellent and eccentric collection from military toothbrushes to main battle tanks crammed into every available space. Several hours required to appreciate it all. Snacks and drinks available, and a wide range of militaria for sale to take home.

A little hidden gem! We went for something to do in the later afternoon & were pleasantly surprised. As history enthusiasts we thought the collection was fantastic with so much to see! There is enough information without it being too much to read! Toilets & food available 👍 Will visit again!

Decent and interesting collection although could be better documented. The price is exobitant for the experience; we covered the entire collection in about an hour. And there is nothing additional in the price; you pay and you walk around looking at stuff. Maybe of interest to war memorabilia buffs but more most people there are probably better attractions for a fraction of the price. I'd recommend they heavily drop their prices, or, at the very least, publish them somewhere so that you know what the cost is before you drive out into the middle of nowhere.
