What a great hidden treasure in Cornwall. Never realised what went on during the wars. Good displays and a great film on how it was all created and history of the airfield

Hubby was well chuffed when I suggested coming here whilst we were on holiday - this is the sort of thing he loves. Neither of us were disappointed. The exhibits were really interesting, and loved the touches of humour dotted around.

The museum does not own the runways which I believe belong to a farmer who keeps a flock of sheep on them. The museum probably know who to contact, maybe worth a phone call.
