Review of Midland Air Museum

Midland Air Museum

Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 19 August 2014

This was another Dad & son visit here, son is now 6, we go annually as each year he's ready to learn notice something else.
He loves the been able to touch things, sitting in the Meteor cockpit and having an adventure is is favourite. For me the staff that sit in the Argosy & Vulcan with you and bring things to life are the highlight.

Nice there is a new addition in the Tornado this year.

The cafe is a simple affair but I think thats right the effort/energy goes elsewhere.

Well done to the team which run this place I imagine it hinges on a lot of volunteer work.

What a super day, despite the ageing of the aircraft the hand on and climb on opportunities made this a real museum not all films and buttons.

This is a great museum - it hasn't tried to become 'modern' and is better as a result - models, good explanations and interesting dioramas complement a superb collection of aircraft. Being able to climb up into the cockpit of a Vulcan Bomber and being able to explore the Argosy are two experiences that few other air museums offer as part of the admission fee. Friendly staff and an excellent guide in the Vulcan.

Not as glitzy as some of the larger air museums but the rarity of the exhibits is staggering. They have a Vulcan, and many "one offs". A Tornado GR4 is currently being prepared for exhibit. Entry fee is reasonable, excellent well stocked shop and a small cafe area.
The "true" aircraft enthusiast has to visit this.
