I'm delighted that you and your daughter enjoyed discovering the amazing story of Air Transport Auxiliary and then had a Spitfire simulator flight over 21st century London. And thank you for recommending us to others - especially as August seems to be a rainy washout!

We had the most enjoyable morning here. There is such passion about the history. Colin was brilliant and spent ages chatting to us. The highlight was the Spitfire simulator. Happily neither of us crashed!!! Many thanks to all staff at the Heritage Centre xx

Small local museum, along with a fascinating floor of exhibits about the work of the ATA in WWII, who were headquartered at nearby White Waltham. The courage and workrate of those men and women pilots is truly inspiring, and the exhibition is a great tribute...More

Beautiful building in immaculate condition. The local items were of interest, and I bought a book on Branch lines in Berkshire that gave details of the village where my grandmother lived before WW1. The ATA exhibition and archive exceeded my expectations, and the simulator is...More

Despite having lived in the town 70 years, and being a retired history teacher, I learned a lot about the area, many things to see, interesting talks, a Spitfire simulator not just for kids. Small building but not overcrowded, a lift for disabled.

It's always good to be praised by local visitors - and even better to discover that you discovered so much about Maidenhead's fascinating history. And as you say, the Spitfire simulator is for children of ALL ages.

A small but fascinating museum with excellent exhibits and an amazing archive of documents. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The Spitfire simulator is really good and makes for a fun visit. Well worth taking the time to stop by and see.
