Thank you for your positive review, we're really pleased you enjoyed your visit and hope you will visit us again soon.
A really special museum, informative, poignant and entertaining. Can’t recommend highly enough, so well run. The gentleman in charge really knows his stuff and made us so welcome. Will definitely come back when we have more time.
Very informative displays, lots of reading attached explaining the artefacts in detail. A great deal of effort has obviously been made with the Centre layout and displays, to excellent effect. Welcoming and knowledgeable staff, and we enjoyed our conversation with the volunteer on the current...More

No it is not a farm or a health centre!
Take care with parking on the grass especially if it has been wet for a while.
A free attraction that depends on your generosity to grow.
Well worth the visit. Nice staff on duty when...More
Lovely little museum run by really helpful enthusiasts. Grandkids loved it on Easter trail event. Lots of little interactive electronic gadgets to play with to keep the kids, and us, amused. Jolly good show chaps. Real shame they wont allow it on the base across...More
I visited the aviation centre with my 13 year old son. I was raised nearby so used to see and hear the Jet Provost aircraft all the time back in the day, so was looking forward to finding out a little more about them.
Had seen the signs off the A17 but had never been. Museum is in a small building on a farm. Inside was small but nicely laid out with many hands on exhibits. Currently there’s a temporary exhibition about airships at Cranwell and surrounding areas. All...More
