  • 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.
  • Hidden gem. Full of plenty of aircraft with the vast majority free to climb in and out of. 2 children (5&8) had a great time as well. The staff are all so friendly and knowledgeable giving stories of all the aircraft. We spent 4 hours and there was more than enough to keep us entertained.
