First visit to this museum and being a WW2 junkie, I really enjoyed it. Very clean site and if you are interested in the history behind the World Wars and beyond, its a good place to go. There are 14 or so buildings ranging from hangers full of restored and part restored aircraft, to air traffic control towers and aircraft gun turret displays. There is also a cinema, which shows the importance of bomber command through WW2 and how many pilots and crew lives were lost and the fact that the dead have only recently been honored.
My only reservations are, that there are only three things that you can 'climb into'. There is a jet provost cockpit, a Canberra nose and a full DC3 with sound effects inside. I think kids may become quickly bored unless they have a 'guide' to talk them through things.
Nice to see a Lightning, Victor, Fairey Gannet, Halifax, Mosquito and a 109 amongst other things.
Im sure over the next few years the place will go from strength to strength.
