We visited here last Saturday. Unfortunately it was raining but that did not detract from this good display of aircraft from the 1930,s to the Concorde. The Concorde is the actual plane that was brought up by barge from London in pieces and reassembled, it is amazing you can walk on to the plane all the seats etc are still... More

It is several years since I visited the flight museum but it was interesting to see the variety of aeroplanes on view. The highlight was Concorde and it was surprising to see how narrow it was inside. The place at that time needed some updating and I am sure this will happen soon

Entrance fee was £12 per adult & it was well worth it (free parking). The museum & grounds are kept in excellent condition. Their are plenty of planes on display, Concorde, Spitfire, Harrier Jet, passenger airliners etc. There is plenty of information on the exhibits & they are all presented well. Plenty members of staff on hand to answer any... More

There are a few hangars that house various planes, etc. and the grounds have buildings from yesteryear. Very interesting and informative. Well worth a visit.

I think this would be a great place to bring y uni children, as there's masses of space between the hangars and there's lots of interactive areas which encourage you to be very hands on. There's also a good collection of aircraft including, of course, Concorde which is nicely done. For me, there was something just missing - it didn't... More

We spent 5 hours here, fantastic Museum.. the highlight of which of course was The Concorde Experience, I could easily have spent another couple of hours here as we didn't see everything we wanted too, nice cafe, little pricey but food was good... souvenir shop was lovely too... A real Credit! Well done...

Took my six year old twins for a visit. Lots to see and lots of big open spaces and a play park to break the day up with small children. The planes on display were fantastic, especially Concorde which didn't fail to impress. Kids were fascinated and enjoyed moving around the place, getting to go inside some of the bigger... More

Very good museum off the beaten track.. We were driving to North Berwick from Edinburgh and saw a signpost so went in for a look. It is situated in a beautiful setting (kind of feels like Brittany, France) and we were lucky to get a beautiful sunny day. The Concorde museum room was our favourite. I learned so much, you...
