“Fun place to spend an hour or two”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

What an interesting place! I particularly liked the children's quiz that I attempted to complete as I went round the museum - actually found it really hard (!) but a very useful focus for my wanderings in and amongst the various helicopters on display. A great way to pass a couple of hours.

Good value for money good for people interested in helicopters. Helicopters in good condition but the one downside is not a day activity

My family really enjoyed this museum. You can go round the exhibits at your own speed. Such a lot to see.

You have to remember that a lot of the staff are volunteers but it was good value for money.

It is a great place to go when the weather is bad.

Our 3 year old just loved the helicopters especially the jungle exhibit

“Excellent venue for Rota enthusiasts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

Visited here in May 2014, it is full of all types of helicopters with very informative information boards. My son particularly enjoyed being talked through the take off and landing in the Lynx. The future plans look impressive and the development will only enhance and improve the experience.

Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. Tickets valid for 12 months so well worth a trip. Cosy cafe area with very reasonable prices too. Would recommend
