    Hi Cornishboy

    I visited this place a few years ago, great place! real treasure trove and how a museum should be....no daft computerised screens just propper smelly heavy exhibits. Ild recommend anyone interested in ww2 militaria to go.

    Cheers, must get down there agian sometime.

    Been to it a couple of times. Can thoroughly recommend it as a day out.
    Do they still have the Churchill tank there?
