This was our first time to the Gatwick Aviation Museum. My wife and I worked as cabin crew out of LGW for many years and didn't know this even existed! Small but perfectly formed would be the phrase for the place. Well laid out and some great airctaft to get very close to, all with information to read about the specific aircraft you're looking at. We took our two young boys and I have to say the staff were what made the experience so special. Jeff White took it upon himself to give us a personal tour! His knowledge was great and my boys were somewhat mesmerised by his enthusiasm! A lovely chap. The history of Gatwick on the wall as you enter was my favourite, brought back some great memories. Thank you Gatwick Aviation Museum for a lovely visit.

I’ve downloaded this app for the sole purpose of thanking them. Brilliant, informative and very welcoming. My friend and I went not knowing what to expect and they have a wonderful collection of interesting aircraft. The real magic is with the very qualified and generous tour guides. Our chap (sorry, forgot his name) had been RAF for 27 years and I’m fairly sure he knew all there is to know about how these things work and their historical significance. Would thoroughly recommend going and make sure you ask questions. We got a fairly impromptu physics lesson (which we asked for and really needed) and have come away richer for the experience. Well done to all involved. Thanks.

Wonderful experience for our family n excellent worth of spending time to explore the aircrafts with intriguing background in history. Thank you so much for Jeff who are so friendly and wholeheartedly to given us a wonderful tour and explained more in depth knowledge behind. We also have a unbelievable luck to have met Mark who has over 35 years of experience as a pilot. It’s a shame that we not allowed to visit inside the aircraft because of the Covid. But that also gives us a excuse to visit the museum again in future. We have learned a most precious lesson n definitely come back again.

As an aviation fan and WW2 studier I found the items along with detailed descriptions very useful to fill in some gaps in my knowledge. The staff were very friendly and informative, highly recommended.
