Went here last Saturday with my partner and her Grandchildren (5 and 3).
Nicely set out. Loads to see. Most exhibits can be touched. You can actually climb into the cockpits - move the sticks and flip switches
All of us loved it. Clean toilets....More
Took our 14yr old son(on his birthday) our 10yr old daughter and we met up with a friend and his 5yr old daughter and everyone had a fabulous time. So many of the aircraft cockpits can be sat in with switches that work and power...More

This must be about the only time you will get to climb into so many cockpits in a museum. Take care as you climb ladders and pass by wing edges.
It is not massive but it is well done. The price is right.
I wish all museums were like this! None of this 'please stand behind the rope malarkey' it's very much get up those ladders and try not to bang your head or knees whilst getting into the cockpit, which is easier said than done when you...More
