This museum is rather small, yet full of interesting information. It's definitely a must for war birds enthusiast. It is next to "The RAF Manston History Museum", so you can have two attractions in one trip.

Stumbled across this on a miserable wet day so went in. Entry is free but please make a donation. A Spitfire and a Hurricane and lots of peripheral memorabelia. Spent well over an hour in this small museum. First rate.

A packed museum of all sort of bits and pieces plus the two planes. I spent an interested half hour, my husband was over an hour and would have stayed linger. Nice little cafe too
