This is the second time I've been to Flixton and I will no doubt be back. It is an Alladin's Cave of aviation history treasures heaped together in an informal bundle. The down side is that it can be difficult to find the right exhibit for a text, but the up side is one can spend hours browsing and see... More

I visited the museum with my husband a toddler and we all loved it. We were amazed at how much there was to see. The volunteers were absolutely incredible and made us feel so welcome. Showing us round- my son had a go in the helicopter and I was shown morse code. The museum has so much to see and... More

How amazing is this place - some 60 or so aircraft, and over 20000 artefacts to completely overwhelm the visitor. Shall go again when the weather is warmer.

My wife Hazel and I like to take the grandsons because it is a great place for them to unwind and inspect, touch and in some cases play on and reactant . The museum caters for all ages young to old and the staff are very dedicated and most helpful.

The museum has many types of aircraft to see from prop to jet. If you come past the site after dark and swing your vehicle so that the lights illuminate the entrance and beyond, you will see hundreds of rabbits running around!

We visited again this year, several times, as we found the website for the Museum and discovered that they have several special days every year. The one we enjoyed had live music, from the war period. A large band, all dressed the same playing the popular music of the time. It.was a very enjoyable afternoon. Looking forward to next year...

We visited specifically for the Air Sea Rescue/Marine Craft Section part of the museum, which is great if you are interested in that however the rest of the museum is also great and well worth a visit. There is lots to see and lots to do, in fact we spent most of the day there. They have a great little... More

If you like aviation history,this is the place to go. We were there for three hours but honestly you need to spend more time here hence I am planning another visit. Lots to see outside and even more inside the huts and hangers.

excellent, very friendly staff, made our dogs welcome as long as they were on leads, all free, but donations welcome, clean toilets, there is a small cafe and a bric-a-brac stall to help with funding, and a nice walk round woodland, but that was closed for work the day we went.

What a lovely place. Friendly and informed staff (all volunteers). It's like a rabbit warren. So much too see. It is free but a donation is requested. There is a lovely walk from the car park. Take a picnic. Well worth a visit
