Fantastic little museum. Not expensive to get into and plenty of free parking. With it not being huge we were there for around an hour.

Stopped for a look round on our way home, friendly atmosphere from the outset, some great exhibits especially the some of the helicopters that we used during the Falkland conflict. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.
