For a small museum it has an excellent selection of 'real' aircraft plus other exhibits, including the excellent Frank Whittle centre. Particularly enjoyed my visit to the Vulcan and Electra cockpits. At £7 per adult you cannot go wrong. Also perfectly adequate tea room available.

Although we live in Coventry, I have never been and was surprised by the amount to see. It was very quiet on the day of our visit and for the majority of our time, we were the only ones there. I loved the meteor, and...More
