This is a good one for history lovers like me. I really liked learning about the inner workings of the Queens Guard and also seeing the horses and their role within everything. We also stopped in the gift shop which was really nice. I wouldn’t put this museum on the top of my list of history museums but it’s definitely a good one if you’ve already been to the obvious ones.
