I have been to this museum three times.

It is housed over 6 floors, and is an incredibly indepth and informative museum, for adults and kids alike.

The museum covers a wealth of information, from WWII from a child's perspective, to Crimes against Humanity exhibit, to a 'live' trench warfare enactment, to various tanks and fighter aeroplanes, to the Holocaust.

It covers most wars that the Commonwealth and Britain have been involved in.

It has a comprehensive shop where you can buy all kinds of DVDs and music pertaining to these war times, as well as posters and other memorabelia.

I especially like the posters, maybe because I am a graphic designer.. and how they were used as propoganda and used to lure poeple into fighting for their country in the war.

Definately worth a visit - if not two or three!
