This Museum is great for all of the family with its displays of all kinds of aviation throughout the years. We took a group of young children on a cubs visit and they all thoroughly enjoyed themselves!

Was a lovely way to spend a couple of hours on a rainy Sunday. Lots to see in a little area. Staff very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Well recommended. Take cash as they don't have a card machine.

Besides of the planes, lots of interesting texts to read, brilliant photographs, amazing old objects to see and read about. It's not a big museum, but it's loaded! It was fun to go inside the plane outside, though we couldn't understandably go inside the cockpit....More

Cheap entry fee, and a horde of information. That said, this museum is probably best reserved for true plane enthusiasts.
