This is a great little museum with primary source material especially about the now closed nearby Royal Naval Air Station. Staffed by knowledgeable volunteers many who lived through the war this is a must see in Crail.

Great wee nuseum, loads of fascinating facts and loads of great photographs. Hadn't realised the Joint Forces language college was at Crail Airfield. Staff were very welcoming and and had lots to say on anything enquired about. A real hidden gem

Brilliant little museum and information centre. Staff helpful, friendly and well informed. Lots of items of interest, re war and the airfield nearby. Beautiful wall hanging stitched by local people. Plenty of old photos and artefacts. Good little shop. Great convenient location.

I have to admit to being a fan of these little local museums and heritage centres. Often times their titles are bigger than the premises they occupy. And volunteer run places like this are usually the best, as the people who man them, WANT to...More
