  • Spent 3 hours here viewing all the history from ww1 through to modern times. All the staff who are volunteers are very friendly and helpful giving the history and stories behind the aircraft. They even have children participation quizzes to get them involved. Loved our visit.
  • Sweet but not used as a criticism. Run by wonderful volunteers who adore what they do. If you expect a vast museum of aircraft this isn't for you but what they do have is authenticity and a fascinating array of out national past. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit.
