Fantastic museum with lots on offer and very high standards. Interactive exhibits for young and old. A reasonably priced cafe too. We went with my elderly father and he struggled with mobility quite a bit as its very spread out but that was the only negative. The effects ride was heaps of fun and good value. Recommend paying the extra... More

I've never misjudged an attraction more than this one. I've driven past a number of times but the view of a large metal building and a few aircraft over a hedge just wasn't enticing enough, but having just visited Lunt Roman Fort a few hundred yards away a with at least an hour to kill I finally took the plunge....

What a great way to spend a number of hours up close and personal to some of the historic craft, some of which are one of the few left in existence. They will have new exhibits on display from time-to-time as well! I would go check out the helicopter rotor head that some students at Warwick University restored. So beautiful.... More

Can't believe I've just been in a Vulcan Bomber (City of Coventry) for just £7!!! entry to the museum and no queue! Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides, knew the answer to every question, no matter how obscure. Lots of great stories and operational tales and very happy to spend time with visitors. Spent at least 30 minutes just in the... More

We loved it here, place was relatively cheap and interesting - ran partly by volunteers who are clearly dedicated. Not sure we would of enjoyed it as much if weather was poor as mostly outdoors to store the planes. Some amazing planes there and my boys were extremely excited

This is a great museum with some superb exhibits. Aviation buffs will love it, but there really is something of interest for everybody. The volunteer staff are excellent, and went to great lengths to open as many aircraft as possible for my aviation mad 8 year old. They have some very interesting and rare aircraft on display, and we were... More

This is a must for aviation fans with a great selection of Jet age planes including a full Vulcan bomber which has a guided tour so that you can get a real feel for how it was when operated, excellent. the rest of the museum is packed with local flying memorabilia of varied interest to the flying buff.

A really lovely day and the interior of the museum was like an oven which is such a shame as the place is just packed full of interesting things and exhibits. A shame I am not more agile as would have loved to fit in the Avro Vulcan cockpit😀. Overall a great place for the enthusiast and young family alike... More

It's a nice place to spent about 1,5 hour. They have a lot of model planes, but very enthusiastic volunteers, willing to show you around and tell you all about it. They have mostly planes from before 1960, from America to Russia. All and all, if you are in the neighbourhood it's worth to take a look.
