Another part of the museum site. This is really a great museum with dioramas and hundreds of exhibits. Shop is excellent and the life size action scenes are brilliant.

almost a family museum with a unique atmosphere. one of the few military museums where you feel you are in the living presence of the heroes themselves - because normally you are.

Lots of exhibits loaned by various families and ex-servicemen. You will not see a better collection of rare medals in one small building anywhere, I would imagine. Exhibit cases are well maintained but a bit "faded glory".
