It is a museum with many interesting artifacts, with interesting and helpful staff.

“Good Exhibotion”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Facilities are old but kept in good condition by the Museum staff. The staff are friendly and always willing to help and answer questions from visitors. A small restaurant with good food where you can have a small lunch or breakfast. Airplanes at the exhibition is nice and my kids could even sit in the cockpit of one of the planes. Lots of model airplane on display as well.

“Nice airplanes to view”
Reviewed 3 August 2012

They got a very nice exhibition. We wanted to have an event there but when we had a look at the premises and all the questions they asked us we felt like criminals so thats my reason for giving them a poor rating.

“Ideal for young and old”
Reviewed 31 May 2012

I visited the museum with my kids and they absolutely loved it. The kids were fascinated by the planes and other bigger displays while I found the older visitors who were there on our visit, although they also looked at the bigger things, found the smaller exhibits and information to be of interest. An interesting addition to the museum is the hanger next door where planes are restored and serviced. The museum is really worth an hour or so of one's time.
