Firstly, it's free (but you really should make a donation). Small but lots to see. Fly Concorde or a fighter in a simulator. Talk to those who worked on or flu the planes. Check opening times (not weekdays).

Some interesting exhibits from the birthplace of aviation in the UK. Cody's first flight in 1908 took off about 100 metres from here!

This is a must visit for father and son. I took my dad and he talked the hind legs of the guys who were volunteers, mainly because my dad was the quality assurance engineer on most of the airplanes built. He's now passed away but this remains a great memory for me. Thanks to all involved at FAST

Good simulators; knowledgeable staff (especially the Concorde chap) who spent a lot of valuable time with us; wonderful models to buy at excellent prices. Great piece of history for a few hours.

There is lots to see including Samuel Cody's replica plane and exhibition, this part was really interesting as we knew nothing about him. Amazing what this man achieved! We went on a very cold Sunday so unfortunately you couldn't get into all the cock... More

My husband is an aviation fanatic so I took him here as a surprise on his birthday. Be warned though only open weekends & Bank Holidays. For those who faithfully 'follow' their friend or family member around such venues, be prepared for it to be a little underwhelming. For those who hold everything aviation dear, you'll find lots of hidden... More

I took my grandson here and he was delighted with it. He was able to get into some of the planes and helicopters and a young lad took him in charge and told him all about the plane and which controls to use to fly it. This young lad spent an awful lot of time with my grandson and they... More

The staff we all agreed, made the museum. Their passion and enthusiasm for aviation...and the breadth of their experiences...made it one of the most inspiring museums to visit. Thank you.
