Lot more to it than I thought, plenty of interesting exhibits and information on history of Doncasters original airport. Plenty of exhibits that are not to do aircraft but to do with Doncaster.

The organisers have listened to feedback and added more exhibits for kids to go on. Lots of things to see and finish off in the shop with models.
