We visited Airbase recently and whilst we could not fault the courtesy, enthusiasm and helpfulness of the staff we found the experience quite disappointing.
On their website Airbase describe themselves as being a living museum. However on the day that we visited out of around 30 aircraft that were on display only two were open to the public. We have a keen interest in aviation and knew the names most of the aircraft but there was very little (if any) information on show for the majority of the exhibits.
At lunchtime with both of us being hungry we tried to find something to eat only to be told that The Canberra Cafe was closed. We then headed over to the DC6 Diner where we were met by a member of staff who gave the impression that it really was too much trouble to serve us and with no snacks being available we had to settle for just a hot drink.
In conclusion we thought that the £10 admission fee was quite expensive and didn't represent good value for money. By comparison the Midland Air Museum which you have to pass to get to Airbase is far better value at £5.50 with more to see and is a genuinely hands on experience
