Absolutely lovely staff, you can ask any questions. One plane outside, everything else is inside. If the weather is miserable, you'll definitely will have a good time inside. It's fun to see everyday objects how did they look like and worked when they were invented.

This Museum is great for all of the family with its displays of all kinds of aviation throughout the years. We took a group of young children on a cubs visit and they all thoroughly enjoyed themselves!

Was a lovely way to spend a couple of hours on a rainy Sunday. Lots to see in a little area. Staff very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Well recommended. Take cash as they don't have a card machine.
