It was a bit tricky to find, but worth it. Kids loved climbing into the cockpits and playing games. Staff were friendly and gave us lots of info on the planes. The cost for a family was £15. Well worth it!

We did a 60 mile round trip to take our grandson to visit this attraction only to find that it is now closed until April of next year (2017). This should, surely, be noted on your website.More

Visited several years ago though it doesn't let me say so. At first glance it's a junkyard and we nearly drove past it, but looks can be deceptive. Americans used to professional museums with massive collections like Pima, USAF or the Smithsonian may be a...More

Nice museum with a few exhibits. Many cockpits can be sat in so a nice experience for kids. Not the easiest to find but worth the effort to find it. Friendly hosts with a good knowledge of the exhibits.

Well this place is difficult to find. All we knew was that it's by the airport somewhere. It's actually off the roundabout in an industrial estate. It's privately owned and from the outside you think - oh dear, it's a scrap yard! In actual fact,...More

We had a fantastic visit spent an hour climbing in and out of cockpits. It's great to go to a museum where you can touch the exhibits. Would recommend you don't need to be aircraft enthusiasts to enjoy it.
