We spent a couple of hours here. They have all sorts of aircraft, including F111. Lots of historical info. The volunteer staff are passionate about the place and very informative. Well worth a visit.

We visited the museum on very rainy wet day . The volunteers were very friendly and engaging. The variety of aircraft was impressive and surprisingly kept both my children engaged. We had a very interesting and enjoyable visit.
