What a gem of a find. Great value for money and really interesting. Kids can climb aboard many of the full size planes as well as a glider that has been rigged with a motor to move up n down and sideways as well as simulating shooting. There is a little shop attached for souvenirs and snacks as well as... More

Must have visited this place many years ago during the time when my son was an air cadet at the building next door. The museum has been extended and there are wonderful facilities at the front - looks like the public can get a cuppa here without necessarily entering the museum. There is room for quite a number in the... More

We took some friends here for a visit before going to lunch on a Sunday. museum. Although we have lived in the area for a number of years, we hadn't visited this historic museum, built near the site of Woodley Airfield, an important place during WWII. There are some interesting exhibitions, but some could do with better signage. The gift... More

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
