This is a really great place to take children or really its great for any age. 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.

The Air Science Museum is very interesting, with lots of knowledgeble staff. There is a section of a trident plane where you can go into the cockpit and if you are lucky you may find one of the original pilots of this plane helping out who can tell you all about it. All the displays are excellent. You can walk... More

Lots of interesting exhibits with a feel of yesteryear! Staff are helpful and informative and it's great to get so close to the aircraft. A great way to supplement your visit to the airshow or to while away a couple of hours.

This is a small museum but is run by people that really care about the place. Loads of exhibits and always somebody on hand with great knowledge. Entry is free so be sure to make a donation, well worth a visit.
