You do not have to be an Aeroplane nut to enjoy this place. It is a big open place where the exhibits are mostly undercover in the hangers but on the whole they are not crammed in. There is bags of room in the hangers to wander between the aircraft and get really close which allows you to appreciate them... More

This is a fabulous day out so much to see and do. You could spend the whole visit in just one of the hangers as there are so many planes, tanks, lorries and helicopters to see. The American hanger Is one of the best but they are all excellently well displayed and the information provided is fantastic. Staff so enthusiastic... More

This is the most easy 5 point review I have written. The worlds best Aircraft museum by far, and that's on a day without a air show. If there is a air show it's even better! The collection is great, just make shure you have a lot of time to see it all.

Some areas are closed currently - the American Hangar, but there is plenty there still to keep the kids enthralled. Staff are lovely and the outdoor play area is great now. Lots of food options - good value. Would recommend.

I can't make this a long review as I will really begin to ramble! I hadn't been for over 12 years before my visit in August and I had such a brilliant day. Nostalgia mixed with an older appreciation of this place. It was a shame that the 'teletubby' (American) hanger was being refurbished but we still got to see... More
