There are a huge number of exhibits in this museum and the layout and information boards make it better than some I have been to. It is very well worth a visit.

What a fabulous place. Loved the place, loved the beautifully cared for and maintained exhibits, loved the layout and loved the friendly and knowledgeable volunteers. Oh, and did I mention I got to climb up into the cockpit of a Vulcan?

This is a very good way for anyone even vaguely interested in aviation to spend 4 or 5 hours. The site isn't huge but it has an amazing collection of aircraft, many of them unique examples of the particular type. The indoor exhibits are well...More
