"It’s been a while since I visited this museum and there have been a few changes. The museum is fantastic with lots of interesting displays and information. A new outside area which is a mock up of one of the trenches. You need a guide to view this. Roy was our man and wow, he has so much knowledge. He also gave us information when we viewed some of the other rooms and I could have listened to him all day. We only had 2 hours to spare this time which included a visit to the cafe. The staff were very good to us and the food was lovely. This museum is a must for anyone visiting the area but give yourself plenty of time because there is a lot to see. We didn’t get a chance to see the gardens but next time we will allow longer. Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic. We will be back, meantime, “Stay Cheeky.”"
