This was our second time at this amazing museum . They have contemporary witnesses in their exhibitions, from soldiers to Pow’s to civilians sharing their stories. A must do with teens.

The history was just stunning. You could feel Henry the VIII and Elizabeth I prescense throughout the visit. The Crown Jewels were mesmerizing. If you love anything Royal or Castles and history you won’t go wrong coming to this. Be prepared to walk up lots of stairs. Some of them small and steep.
