You can go into cockpits, touch the outside of airplanes and scare the wits out of yourself trying a simulated flight. So realistic my 5 year and 7 year olds thought we were actually on a plane and had flown somewhere with daddy at the controls! They were completely disorientated when we got out of the cockpit and we were still in the same place! They do school tours and summer camps. It's great to have something like this right on our doorstep.

Grandpa Tom, that' very kind of you to say,many thanks!
I'm so glad that Captain Joe and Sam and Nanny Mc had a great time too, part of our job as parents and grandparents is to feed their curiosity and expose them to all sort of new things, in our case its aviation. I just spent the morning at Limerick Flying Club with my grandson, my little Co Pilot, so I know exactly how you feel! It means a lot to all of us here, its part of our being and we take it very seriously, in a fun way! We look forward to seeing you again, and check the facebook page for pics!
Best Regards
Jane

Visited here on saturday as we were staying in the hotel next door and they recommended the visit . Glad we went a lot of aircraft and you get to look in old cockpits of planes and the guy who gave us the tour showed us everything even showed us the flight simulator that future pilots train on and do refresher courses . They have a lot of interesting stuff here and they said a lot of it is donated to them very educational trip well worth the experience and its only €6 each .

My kids love all things aviation and military and the aviation museum ticked all the boxes. Very reasonable cost and a great way to spend an afternoon with the kids. There is a good variety of items and A/C on display with very knowledgeable staff.
