The Museum will be FREE to visit for the Bank Holiday Weekend!

Until then, the Bridge Study Centre is CLOSED, to allow us to focus on the re-opening.

The Museum has been closed in order to upgrade the heating and electrics in the building as well as replace a leaking roof.


Highlights of our Galleries include the Waterloo Map, the world’s first useable guided torpedo, a huge piece of the Berlin Wall, a Harrier Jump Jet and an enormous V2 Rocket. Click the map to view the Gallery Guide.
