I really enjoyed my visit to the museum. I went with my husband and my Dad who had visited the museum when it first opened in the '80s! I'm not a plane fanatic but I enjoy finding out about local history. There was lots to discover here with stories about the various pilots who had fought in the war. There... More

Visited here as a side trip, planning to spend a couple of hours ended up there for 5! If you've any interest in aviation history it's well worth going. The volunteers are very knowledgeable and some are veterans of recent conflict. Respect to them all.

We visited on a Friday. The aircraft on display and other exhibits are very interesting. There were volunteers around to tell you about the displays. I even 'piloted' a plane (good job it was a simulator !)

On first arriving at the car park, there were some lovely old planes and some industrial looking buildings. Our colleagues said, "Well is that it?" How wrong they were. On entering, we were greeted by a some volunteer staff who provided an enthusiastic description of the museum layout and contents and on our way around, we met several more who... More

What a brilliant 4 hours we spent here. Doesn't look like much from outside, but it is a tardis. Lots of planes and memorabilia. Simulator was free and really well explained, my husband didn't even crash!! Would definitely recommend. I am not a big history fan, but thoroughly enjoyed it. John doing the planes talk made it very interesting.

Visited here several years ago and were in the area this weekend so decided to re visit. its a wonderful place steeped in history. A number of aircraft on display including cold war jets. lots of models and information. There is always someone willing to help with information should you require. A must visit for a couple of hours.

A most interesting and absorbing museum seeing as I am an aviator or the past -post war - and interested in the heroics of our brave men and women. I have visit something like 10/12 time and still find something new and different each visit- highly recommended and the staff do their best to make it interesting.

This was our 2nd visit to this real gem of a museum, the kids loved it so much last time they demanded to go back this half term! The guides and staff are really knowledgeable and get the kids involved in the tour, which is free, and helps bring the exhibits to life. The kids really enjoy being able to... More

this is probably one, more for the boys but its still an interesting place. world war exhibits through to more modern day stuff. there is a small café which is a bit on the expensive side. if into aviation and military history you can't go far wrong,
