The airplanes of both world wars was fascinating. Many WW II planes that are familiar, but many WW I planes that were new to me. Well displayed including uniforms and medals. Very interesting

Interesting exhibition of WW2 aviation history and the Stalingrad campaign. But the pricing structure put us off paying for the WW2 exhibition (which we think is probably the better one to see). Definitely worth a look, but check the ticket options first.

Its had a good collections of airforce related items and kids loved watching the old planes. They were curious about the gadgets used during those world war times.
