This fascinating collection covers mostly World War Two and the years 1939 - 1945, but with exhibits from the Boer War right up to the First Gulf War. Ranging from- tanks, guns, helmets, artillery, grenades and bombs to Home Front ration books, gas masks, ARP and Home Guard uniforms and blackout lamps. In 1981 Preston Isaac's runaway hobby was opened to the public, and just keeps growing.

Many of the items and vehicles are hired out to films, recently including "The Monuments Men" and "Fury".

On site is a large shop stocking collectors’ items, de-activated guns, inert ammunition, clothing, hats, badges, survival equipment, books, CDs, toys, souvenirs and much more.
There is a working NAAFI canteen wagon with seating area, serving hot and cold drinks and snacks seasonally, and a picnic area.

The collection has disabled facilities and wheelchair access.

Only guide dogs allowed in the buildings.
