What an awesome hidden gem, not a massive museum but some brilliant equipment to look at. Brilliant for anyone interested in armour & has some great exhibitions too, we has our own personnel guide who was very knowledgeable on everything there. Only criticism is shop could do with selling some items with museum logo on ie fridge magnets, keyring & mugs

Armourfest 2021 was the best one yet, let down a bit by unexpected car parking.
ago. de 2021
I have been to this museum now on several occasions, once I even drove a Saladin and a BV all terrain vehicle. Each year armour fest gets better as more vehicles are restored, this year a Chieftain MBT and a Stug were tearing around too. As this was the biggest event they have had there was no room for parking so a tractor and trailer took you the half mile journey up the road, it was a shame that we did not know this before as we took chairs, large picnic, photographic equipment etc and had to leave most of this in the car, also one tractor was not enough as we had to wait 60min each way for the tractor so we did miss some events. 6 portable loos were laid on for the crowds. One chip van that was very cheap and an outside BBQ were the only food options, again 1 hour to get good priced fish and chips. A small trader area was also very good. The whole event itself was very good, tanks, displays, car crush and car tug o war. The ticket price was well worth it. It was a shame the tractor transport system was not explained before, this did spoil it for a lot of people. As they did know by the amount of tickets sold they should of informed people of the car parking system so people could allow the extra time lost waiting for the tractor. We had a two hour drive and all 4 of us needed the toilet, then having to wait an hour for the tractor was ridiculous, toilets should have been provided in the car park. Hopefully next year will have better parking and better informed amenities.

Not worth it
ago. de 2021
We went to the Armourfest on Sunday 15 August. We were utterly disappointed. To start with we arrived at 9.45 and waited 45 minutes for a tractor and trailer to take us to the venue, which was about 2 miles away, so not a walkable distance. Had we known this we would not have booked! Very poorly organised, they knew numbers attending from the online sales. There were more models on display than actual vehicles & if it had not been for other organisations displaying their vehicles it would have been a despicable waste of money.
It was meant to be a re-enactment ....there was no German e-enactment, all there was were a StuG and a tank driving round the tank pit with a few pathetic pyrotechnics, there were no German re-enactors!!! We sat at the tank pit for 2 hours and an hour of that was watching BV rides!!! Not what we paid for!!. We left at 1.30 very disappointed. Not worth the money!! Compared to other military museums this was very amateurish, even when they don't have a re-enactment day. The toilet & refreshment facilities were an utter disaster, queues everywhere. It was not as though they didn't know how many would attend as they had sold out on Friday 13th August!!! Would certainly not recommend to anyone.

Fantastic day for 'Armourfest'!
ago. de 2021
Plenty of entertainment, things to look at and things to do. Car crushing, seeing restored vehicles running around, living history groups, people sharing their collections and talking about them, stalls, archery, swing band + more.

Please note I visited during 'Armourfest' which happens once a year and I got to attend for free. Normal price for the museum is £8.00 (£4.00 per child/one child free), £12.00 for adults during Armourfest 2021 (£7.00 for under 16s, £1.00 for under 5s).

Definitely worth it to visit during Armourfest, people who are not highly passionate about what's usually being displayed may walk away disappointed during any other visit as their collection is not as grand as other museums.

The museum has tried to make it as accessible as possible for everyone however the vast majority of the museum is outside and involves a lot of walking. There are disabled spaces just outside the 'hanger' but the car park for those without badges is a trek. They were transporting people to and from the carpark but I believe that is just for Armourfest.

Throughout the day there are loud and unexpected noises from pyrotechnics and large vehicles manoeuvring.

There is a small tea room with indoor and outdoor seating that sells light bites, snacks and drinks. For the day there was also a chip van, ice cream van and bbq. Queues and waits were long, so I recommend bringing at least a snack or to just take advantage of the space available for a picnic.

It was absolutely wonderful to see history come alive during Armourfest 2021 and I hope I get the opportunity to visit again in future.

The tanks there are amazing and are in a very well kept condition. The Mark 4 WW1 tank is fantastic and you can get inside it! The cafe has very nice food and you should try the ‘Banjos’ there. Very helpful and friendly staff and would recommend for any tank lover like me. Good gift shop with toys for kids and real bullet casing from a Lewis gun!

An absolute gem

Such a gem. So much to see - a large collection of memorabilia. Volunteering staff were helpful & enthusiastic to show & tell about the exhibits & stories relating to some too. The tanks were such a hit with Deborah being the favourite.

Such a lovely place, just came back from here. We went with two boys, aged 9 & 10 as a birthday treat. They had the best time, everyone was so knowledgeable, lovely and friendly. Very COVID safe. We will most certainly be back!

A real hidden gem for military history buffs
ago. de 2020 • Familia
Visited on Sunday as part of a large group, having read previous reviews we were a bit apprehensive about what we would find. Glad to say the we found the poor reviews far from the truth. From the start we were made to feel very welcome. It's obvious that a lot of work has been done to comply with covid restrictions so sadly we weren't able to climb inside the exhibits. This did not detract in any way from our experience. All the staff were friendly and knowledgeable, and were on hand to answer any questions. This museum has something for everyone young and old and we will definitely be returning. Hopefully next time the restrictions will have been lifted and we can have a ride too 🙂🙂🙂
