Small by most museum standards, but full of very interesting items and history.Brought back memories of going to the last air shows here in the 1960's with examples of many of the British jets from that golden era.

This has to be one of the most interesting aviation museums in the UK. It deals with both world wars and has many unique artefacts and aircraft. To view the museum properly, take a half a day at least and ask for a guide. We...More

Popped in on our way home from a short break. Lovely museum and full of history, although sometimes there was almost too much and felt a little overwhelming. The naafi offered great food but sadly the coffee machine was not working. My son who is...More

Thank you for your comments. An engineer had been called to fix the coffee machine with only 'instant' coffee available at the time. The Lightning simulator is advertised as being for adults only - for a number of reasons.

A place to visit with all the family. Wonderful display of planes, hands-on experiences, history galore of aviation, RAF and construction of aircraft. Above all, the volunteer staff were extremely helpful and so very proud of this grand museum.

As already advised, only assistance dogs are allowed inside the buildings. All dogs are welcome in the Museum's grounds and picnic area, however.
