This should definitely be on your London to-do list. It's fantastic. There is a lot of military armament, weapons, and vehicles. There are e x t e n s i v e exhibitions on just about everything. They have highlight exhibitions that change monthly, if I'm not mistaken, or it might be qtrly.

While we were there, the highlight exhibitions were for trench warfare, D-Day, and the holocaust. The D-Day exhibition was mainly artifacts, uniforms, weapons, video, letters, and display items. The trench warfare exhibit had a walkthrough trench display which was interesting. The holocaust exhibit was not gruesome as one might expect, and to an extent, understated.

In any case, there's plenty to see, and well worth the admission.
