This is an excellent collection with very keen volunteer curators on hand to answer all your questions. I was in company with 8 & 9 year olds who throughly enjoyed the visit mainly because of the enthusiasm conveyed by the people there.

A must visit if you in the Headcorn area - the exhibits really make you stop and think about the sacrifices made during the war. A good visit for local children studying ww2. A fitting tribute to the brave pilots .

A small but very interesting museum with an original manned v1 test aircraft. The air show had good spitfire displays but was disappointing in overall content with long gaps between displays.More

Thank you for your review. The V1 you describe is a Fiesler Fi103-R4 Reichenberg manned flying bomb which would have used on suicide missions. It is only one of six left in the world of the 175 originally built. Just to clarify the Museum was...More

Popped in after lunch at Wings Bar to show parents the museum. I've been few times before but they hadn't. They really enjoyed reading up on the local area finds and humming along to Glen Miller playing in the background! Bought a few books in...More
