This fascinating museum is on an active base so you will need to pre-book, take photo ID and be prepared for the security and the guard room. IT IS WORTH IT. A fascinating history of our ‘sneaky beaky’ past antics; with some interesting tales to go with them. This small but incredibly interesting museum offers an insight into some interesting... More

Despite living less than 1 mile away I never knew this museum existed. A fascinating insight into what goes on and has gone on behind the scenes. Was then end of 2014 when I visited (but that wasn't a pick list option)

The museum is on an operational Ministry of Defense base, so you cannot just turn up but must make an appointment pick a visit time and supply some personal information e.g. passport number and so on. It is easy enough and the staff are most helpful. On arrival, you have to give up your document and get a pass from... More

This museum is located on a secure military camp and can only be visited by prior arrangement or on open days. If you do make it on camp, it's worth visiting or having a tour of Chicksands Priory. The Int Corps museum has been revamped. It is now larger and higher tech. Touch screens and Bond-like glass monitors tell the... More

Bletchley Park takes all the credit however there are two other secret places you need to visit to break the codes. Intelligence Corp Museum and Chicksands Priory, both within walking distance. Chicksands Priory is open from March to November on Sundays only by appointment. Both these fascinating attractions are on MOD property and remain Hush Hush

Really enjoyed this as it had relevance to us both having lived in places discussed by the guides. You need to book in advance because of security clearance.

We were part of a visiting party to the site, which included a tour around the Museum. We were given a fascinating insight into the intelligence 'world' and our host was very knowledgeable and helpful. The Museum display consists of many exhibits, which were thoughtfully presented.

Difficult to arrange a visit, The show while well-intentioned has not the breadth or historical depth which you would expect.
