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.

I visited on a Sunday and had a great time. The museum is small but it more than makes up for this thanks the the passionate staff who are all volunteers. They are passionate and knowledgeable and make a trip to this museum worth it. Where else will you see a lightning, a jaguar, a harrier, a hunter and a... More

A small museum run by enthusiasts. It was interesting, though could do with more complete labels on the exhibits. Liked the replica of the Cody 1A.

A well looked after museum and the staff are very helpful. Our Grandson got to try the Concorde simulator and received a certificate as he passed. There are other things to try and our Grandson tried these. Very good information about the exhibits.

We visited here one Sunday with my 13 year old son and it was lovely, he loved seeing the old planes outside and all the model ones inside. He particularly enjoyed 'flying' concorde and an aeroplane in a simulator, the volunteers were very helpful explaining how things work - I'm not sure if these guys are ex service personnel but...

We really enjoyed a brief visit here, has a real 1940's feel to the place with a brilliant replica plane built originally by Cody the first manned flight in the UK. Going to take the kids next time its fabulous. Also a replica Concorde cockpit for kids to sit in.
