First off, you really have to love aircraft to visit, I do, and I love to converse with people that know their aircraft, but I especially like the Avro Vulcan, and such a nice guy, let me inside the Vulcans cockpit and he was full of useful information and certainly knew his stuff, if you have a few hours to kill, this is a great place to visit if your in the Coventry area.

A really good range of aircraft and engines on display. For me the highlight was the chance to see the remains of airframe of the Flettner Colibri, a German WW2 intermeshing rotor helicopter. Being able to go into the B2 Vulcan was also quite an experience. You need to allow a few hours to look round. Shame that some of the exhibits are virtually hidden, but it is tight on space.

Had not been for a few years so decided to give it a try with a 2 year old enthusiast. Paid £7.00 with the little one foc. A lot to see and explore if the weather is good and several cockpits open that day with great informative staff willing to answer any questions. Will return in the summer with a picnic as several places to sit outside. Good well stocked shop full of aviation material.

A gorgeous museum that can be visited by both children and the mature audience. It tries to keep the airplanes or miniaturized copies of the planes in great condition. Impressive photographs, decorations, costumes from the era. At the end you can buy a lot of great souvenirs
