  • What a hidden gem. My girlfriend took me here on my birthday, and we had a fantastic time. A great collection of aircraft from over the years. The Tornado being my personal favourite. On arrival we were greeted by a lovely gentleman called David, who was our guide. He walked around with us, telling us all about various aircraft, what they did and how they flew. He also told a us few stories of his own from his years as a pilot and trainer. It was an absolute pleasure. Highly recommend this place.
  • This is an absolute must! An incredible collection of aircraft and memorabilia with such a rich history. Anyone who is remotely interested in aviation will love it here. The ability to climb and sit in some of the cockpits made me feel like a kid in a candy shop. Very few places will let you be as hands on as this. The absolute best part of this museum is the staff, they’re so knowledgeable and enthusiastic in sharing, that it totally made the experience. We expected this to be a short visit and stayed for a few hours, learning and exploring. Loved it.
