Museum well worth a visit, knowledgeable volunteers. Cafe needs to offer more selection of food. Shop OK but requires more thought into what it offers. Labelling could be improved. Control tower very interesting. A little off the beaten track, but worth it. Shame about the...More

My 1st visit here. It is a small museum which is to its advantage. No red ropes round the exhibits, very friendly and well informed staff. Definitely a must see.
