Plenty of exhibits although externally a little tired (planes) and interesting information. Nice little NAAFI for a quick cuppa. Nio interference from anyone as you have a free rein to go and look around

Really enjoyed seeing the old aircraft and reading about the history attached to them. Even got to go inside a Nimrod and was given a very informative talk from a local guide.

We were on holiday in Norfolk, and were really looking forward to this. but the external display of aircraft was pitiful, they looked very tired, rusty and uncared for. However the high spot was to be the Nimrod and Vulcan. What a disappointment .A somewhat bored and tired looking chap came down the steps of the Nimrod asking us for... More

Military geeks will be glad they visited. Lots of kit and things to see (though the Willys jeep is a bit of a basket) and lots of good personal stories and recollections of wartime events. The Vulcan cockpit experience left my husband smiling like a kid at Christmas for hours and the Nimrod tour was brilliant- so informative from someone... More

A great day out for all the family with lots to learn about history of the RAF..with plenty off indoor things to see if the weather is not very good.

best on a dry day as a lot to see outside on the grass. lots of interesting articles inside the hanger, crash items and old uniforms. Some needs a little dusting but all adds to the atmosphere. snack bar available.

Not that easy to find its tucked out of the way behind norwich airport. On arriving 2 adults and 3 kids it cost £10.90 to get in we only paid for 1 child as under 8's get in free. Even this was a lot of money because there is hardly nothing there literally took 15 mins and we had seen... More

We visited on a Bank Holiday and being on a boating holiday had to get there by bus which was a challenge. We had to wait an hour for it to open but when it did, it was very interesting. Lots of old military and some civil planes on display. We paid an extra £2 to have some additional interior... More

Very poorly signposted and although good value a little run down for the tourist that they need to attract, only two folk on site, one on the desk and one poor chap in the Nimrod who seemed tired. Sadly the cafe was not open as this would have helped our visit. In this competitive age they must do a little... More

I recently visited this air museum as part of a retirement 'task' to visit as many military collections as possible. Hidden away on the furthest side of Norwich Airport, the volunteers are collecting a really useful display of mainly Norfolk related air craft, artefacts and exhibits of all sorts. The Vulcan bomber and the Nimrod, (developed from the DH Comet)... More
