The museum

Sadly we are now closed due to Coronavirus and all of our events have been postponed for the forseeable future. We will be transforming ourselves into a ‘digital museum’ by putting new content online in the coming weeks to entertain and inform.  Please keep in touch with us via social media.  You can still explore our historic building via our online tour and find out about our amazing collection and stories by exploring this website.

  • Dog friendly attraction!
  • £6 annual adult pass

Thanks for a great day, my boys loved dressing up and handling the guns.  The museum was very interesting and the boys enjoyed the quiz as we went around.  Lovely staff too, thanks.
