“Brilliant afternoon”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

I took my grandson there after school, he is 5, he loved all the stuffed animals, the skeleton in the stone coffin he especially liked. He loved the Spitfire, he could get over how big it was, he loved all the engines he could look at near to the plane, a thoroughly enjoyable couple of hours.

“Fantastic interesting day out”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

Been a few times. Always something new to see. My children love it here and it's very family orientated - my daughters love the nature area and the spitfire. More people should visit - it's donation only and great value. Never been bored here and will be returning in the future.
