I took my father to the Gurkha Museum and we enjoyed a couple of hours exploring the exhibits and very informative displays. Very interesting and recommended, Thank you. more »
Fantastic museum well worth a visit. We were lucky enough to have an escorted tour! There is so much to see here you could spend an afternoon there. There is an impressive model of the battle of Waterloo with animations and narrative. There are interactive displays and a space for kids to dress up. This was my second visit. Limited access for wheelchair users as there is a stair lift. There is an excellent cafe in the grounds of the museums.
As an ex RGJ chap it was never going to disappoint now was it? Very well laid out, with a long complicated story to tell, but twas done well. Will go again I'm sure.
