Took my 90 year old father and it was very absorbing, spent most of the day, but could have taken longer, so much to see, most classics from when Britain had the lead in the industry. Very helpful volunteers and even able to go into the Vulcan cockpit, and meet a retired flight engineer giving first hand experiences, to the... More

(my partner wanted to visit). after paying just short of £25 for two adults and a child we decided to go to the cafe which £2.80 for two slices of bread... More

Quite a lot of exhibits although some are showing their age and could do with a clean. Lots of indoor exhibits from all eras, well worth a visit.

New air museum is situated next to the Newark Showground site. Excellent displays. Great for children interested in aircraft. Small cafe on site, and small gift shop with interesting items and books. Plenty of parking. Toilet facilities. I particularly liked the Anderson Shelter display, showing what would be inside the shelter, and around the shelter veg growing and rhubarb etc,... More

On entering the museum premises the first port of call is an interesting and varied book, prints and model shop, both new and second hand. This is also where you pay the entrance fee to the museum. There are several aircraft standing outside including the Canberra , Vulcan and an interestingly painted Shooting Star. In the hangers there is a... More

I attended the special Avro day, which was extremely interesting, and included a talk on the Avro aircraft at the museum, followed by a small group visit to the cockpits of four Avro aircraft, including a Shackleton and, of course, a Vulcan. The volunteers were excellent - both helpful and informative. Also time to view the outdoor and indoor static... More

However on my recent trip i was amazed and the amount of craft and exhibits that the museum now has to show and how far it now stretches. There is so much to see and do for all ages and mobilities. There is an... More
