I gave this 4 stars as although it is an excellent museum it doesn't really compare to Duxford museum near Cambridge where their are actual restorations taking place in the hangers you walk around and its bigger. This museum filled all expectations in many ways...More

No. You can view inside and outside Concorde on the museum entrance ticket. There is also a display in the hanger of memorabilia and a short video.
