A wonderful free attraction, of interest to adults and children alike. Beautifully restored examples of both aircraft which visitors are able to see at close quarters.

we were impressed with the grounds which had a small memorial garden, which was quite moving. the museum is full of battle of Britain exhibits, that come to life due to the way they are put on show

I have wanted to visit for some time, but I waited to have some like-minded friends with me. It is a worthwhile visit, with free entry and very popular with young and old alike. Thoroughly enjoyable.
