Visited this museum today along with two friends, 2 senior citizen's and one adult. The museum was well signposted and parking was close to the museum entrance. When you enter you will see the gift shop and a cafeteria area with seating for approximately 25 people. Discounts are available for senior citizen's and large parties or family groups. Visit the...

We have lived within 200 meters of this museum for years but yesterday was the first time we've visited. There is so much packed in, it's brilliant. My daughter was interested in the different aircraft but especially enjoyed getting to sit in several of the aircraft and "flying" in the jet model. The staff are all enthusiastic and very knowledgable.... More

A brilliant museum to visit with young children. Several opportunities to climb on planes and helicopters including the chance to "fly" a model jet and to go on board a decommissioned passenger jet. It takes about an hour to look around with small children but you could spend much longer. A bargain and something different to do as a family... More

tucked away down a side road close to a large housing estate dedicated to Miles Aircraft and de Havilland which were originally built here. not a huge museum, but worth a visit to see a DH Herald not for small children

Visited today to donate a book of Miles aircraft. the welcome was warm and informative. It is a specialist air museum specialising in the Miles Aircraft type and De Havilland, which were originally built here. The main exhibits are crammed in quite a small area but are easy to see. Their is a wealth of information in photo's and descriptions.... More

As the founder of my paranormal group, I was looking forward to visiting here. We weren't disappointed, it was very good - although it's quite small and doesn't take very long to go round and see everything. We even got invited to go inside one of the planes outside.

Packed full of information, run by locals who have a keen interest, lots to see, models and parts, a full sized plane you can climb aboard but I took two under sevens and they can't read well enough to appreciate all the information or really understand what it was all about. I want able to stop and read what I... More

This is a small museum which has most of the exhibits shoe horned into the main hall, and two aircraft outside (a Fairey Gannet and a Handley Page Herald). Jane and Ken who showed us around the museum couldn't have been more helpful during our visit, and their knowledge of Woodley and Berkshires part in UK aviation history is immense.... More

I went with 2x5 year old boys and a 7 year old girl! They had a fantastic day, we were here 5 hours! It was Easter so there was an egg hunt too which made it lots of fun! The kids enjoyed making parachutes and looking up the guns on the computer in the weapons room! Lots of fun and... More

I am able to walk to this little gem of a museum. Full of interesting items and run by volunteers. As some one who served with the WRAF I found it fascinating. My young niece and nephew although not too interested in the museum ( probably a bit too young to appreciaten it) were thrilled to be able to look... More
