Took a group of elderly gentlemen to see the museum and it was thoroughly informative.A couple of the gentlemen had flown some of the aircraft in the past and they enjoyed reminiscing.

When you pay for your admission tickets you will be asked if you want a quiz and there will be a prize If you complete the quiz(the quiz is quite tough to keep you entertained). This phenomenal attraction will make sure you are never bored. This is an easy 5 stars,I definitely recommend this small but interesting place.

Visited here during half term with our four year old. It was great. Was a bit sceptical when the reception and shop area was in a large wooden shed but it didn't disapppoint once we got inside. Plenty to see and do for his age group, including simulators, cockpits etc. Lots to see, including an engine room and communication room.... More

Good to see so much history in one place. Comfortable to walk round and had the chance to sit in some of the crafts. Enjoyable.
