This museum as the name suggest (the correct name is the de Havilland Museum) is dedicated to specific aircraft, situated on the site where de Havilland designed the Mosquito. I visited whilst in the area, the museum takes a little finding and once I negotiated the driveway, found there was sufficient parking. The entry is reasonable (£8 with gift aid).... More

I visited the museum this afternoon with my kids (8yr old girl, 5yr old boy). It's a modest-sized museum, but there is some great stuff there and you could get close to all the exhibits and inside many of them - the kids loved it. One thing that stood out was how friendly all the museum staff were, they were... More

This attraction is steeped in aviation history from 1940 forwards where the iconic Mosquito plane was designed. The volunteer Trust is trying to reach its target to afford a second hanger so those aircraft presently outside can be better preserved. So go along and support them and if you have a spare couple of thousand pounds -drop it in the... More

Even though it's not a massive site, it's definitely worth visiting as it has plenty of de Havilland aircraft to see. Particularly interesting is de Havilland's most famous plane - the Mosquito. Plenty to climb inside and look at.

We planned to visit this museum when we saw it was so close to the Harry Potter studio tour, when we arrived we found the staff on the desk very friendly and enthusiastic. This attraction consists of a number of hangers containing some very historic aircraft and some stored outside, with the stars of the show being the mosquito with... More

What a great place, I took my son (11) boys day out and we had a great time looking at the planes. I thought he might get board but we were there for 3 hours! You can go inside the aircraft and you get a real feeling of the past. There is lots of aviation history it is truly fantastic!... More

We were really surprised when we visited this museum. The Mosquitos were great and the people there very interesting. I was allowed to climb into one of the planes which was not easy as the ladder was two foot off the ground!! Well worth a trip.

A good place to spend a wet afternoon in Hertfordshire. You can see works in progress as well as finished restorations. Some of the aeroplanes are outside, which shortens their lives, but they are planning to build an extention to the present hangars, to enable the rest of the exhibits to go inside. It isn't just warplanes; you can see... More
