A small on the outside hidden gem. Sited on the old Woodley airfield site and with connections to Miles and Fairy aviation I was amazing at what they had on display. My father was a pilot with Fairy and I was able to meet old colleagues!! My friend had links to ML aviation and there were many items from them.... More

Fascinating insight into history of aviation for adults and kids alike. 'Real' planes to look at, as well as equipment, and loads of information.

interesting local history museum which if your local would be very interesting if your local to see what was there before your house was built, lots to see, lots to read, a few planes to look at, lots of parking, will fill the odd hour but possibly not much more,

Situated a mile or so from junction 10 of the M4 this museum is easily accessible. However, it is only open on Wednesdays and weekends (Sunday only Nov - Mar) and so you need to plan ahead. I've passed by on numerous occasions en route to Twyford but never had sufficient time previously to pop in. There's a small admission... More

This is a small museum tucked out of the way but well worth a visit. Absolutely full of exhibits and little bits of "well I didn't know that" all relating to aviation in the Berkshire area. A very interesting and absorbing couple of hours. It's finding places like this that make for a really worthwhile trip out.

This is one of those small museums you find throughout the UK which was dedicated to the aviation history of the area. It didn't just cover aircraft but also crashes,component companies as well as presents from the Luftwaffe in WW2. The members were passionate about their collection. Whilst it was all good the Mile M52 and the Fairey Jet Gyrodyne... More

If you like your planes then this really is worth a visit. Initially looks very small but is crammed with exhibits. What really makes it come to life are the floor staff who are extremely knowledgeable as they flew some of the exhibits for a living! Talking to these guys gave you a massive insight and brings the exhibits to... More

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
