A group of us were entertained, enthralled, educated by the excellent Curator of the museum. His amazing depth of knowledge regarding the history of De Havilland was delivered in a most enthusiastic manner. A great collection of historically important aircraft. Well worth a visit.

We visited as a couple along with a friend, without having done any research, and unsure what we'd find - and what a brilliant surprise! Interesting exhibits galore : Three pretty much complete Mosquitos ( including a 'slatted' prototype ) in the hangar with active...More

Sorry, cannot remember. I thought there was an entrance fee but I may well be wrong. It may be on their web-site. Well worth it whatever it is.
