    Excellent looking place-it would be quite easy to lose one's self there for a day looking over the displays! Is this a self tour museum or do you have guides? And, that isn't a Genuine VC in the display case in the last photo of post #2? I don't imagine the Swords and oaks Ritter is either?

    Great place, I went there a few times when I lived in York, the different hut for different subjects made it much easier for the kids to process and it's in place that was used in wartime.
