There is a huge collection of uniforms, rifles and model tanks from across the globe, with an area dedicated to female conscription during WW2. There is also a varied selection of machine guns and small arms from around the world.
A street scene is set in WWII. Get your rations here! There’s a draper’s, a general stores, a garage and even the home guard office to mention just a few.
There are two main exhibition areas housing a variety of different vehicles covering six decades of military and civilian transport, from the earliest B-N Islander Aircraft G-AVCN (new for 2021) to a WW2 police car.
Many of the vehicles are in running order and at certain times rides are available in some of them. The latest addition to the collection available for rides is an Abbot mobile gun carrier.
There is so much here and the museum is being updated and improved all the time. Make sure you don’t miss it!
Churchills tea rooms, available for hot and cold drinks, snacks, cakes and cream teas, can also be accessed without entry into the museum.
