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

Made an effort to go as was in the area anyway. This is an excellent museum - although its small (Duxford it isn't!) but its none the worse for that. If you're interested in WW2 aircraft its certainly fascinating - to see two Mosquitos in fair condition is quite a site. There are other De Havilland aircraft around, although some... More

When we got there I was lucky, there are two Mossies for the price of one. One of them is intact and the other one is being refurbished by a team of volunteers, they all clearly love the kites as much as I, huge respect to them. They have some very interesting displays, I took loads of photos of everything,... More

A tiny museum dedicated to an illustrious slice of british aeronautical history in a hangar behind a Jacobean mansion by the M1. Incredible static displays of DeHavilland airframes including a Sea Vixen you can sit in, actual Mosquitos being restored by experts, and photos and memorabilia you wont find anywhere else. Not great for kids but a must for serious... More
