We had a couple of hours to spare on route to the airport so popped into the Air Force Museum to kill the time, unfortunately we found ourselves wishing we had more time to spare.

The museum is well laid out, with great information about all the exhibits and some great attentive staff too.

They run a number of 'behind the scene' tours conducted by older guys who evidently worked on site during it's active life. These seemed really interesting and it was a shame we couldn't undertake one of them.

Highly recommended for all ages.

This was a great day out. Took my visiting parents. Great to have a free trip although donations are obviously welcome. Lots to see and do for all age groups.

Enjoyed our visit here, especially the enthusiastic volunteers that guided us through the museum.
Their pride in their fine museum was very evident. The museum is free and just off a major bus route.
