Good visit lots of outside exhibits plus indoor. Vulcan wasn't "open" unfortunately but the Argosy was. Some good memories of air-spotting at Baginton many years ago. + free car parking - Toilets

For a very reasonable fee was able to have my 8 year old grandson photographed in a fighter plane cockpit, explain the difference between planes of all ages and even get him a guided tour of a Vulcan bomber. All in all very good value and I think we all learned a lot!

We arrived here late on wet day. There was quite a bit to see, it looks like you can get in a few of the cockpits like the Gloster Meteor and the Vulcan on a good day and when there are guides about. We knew this was a small museum before visiting but we were surprised by the amount of... More

Had a great visit to the air museum. Lots of really interesting stuff for adults while fun interactive stuff for our 18 month old to do. Sitting in cock pits and looking at the planes. Staff are very knowledgeable. I particularly enjoyed going in the Vulcan bomber.

Good place to visit but staff are grumpy in the Café. The aircraft are great but the must see is the Vulcan,

During our visit to the UK, we stayed with relatives in Rugby. They suggested we tour this museum knowing I had an interest in aircraft. After a bit of driving around trying to find the museum (it's near the Coventry Airport but you'd miss it if you really weren't looking for it), we entered a large hangar-type building and paid...

With a wet week off work I decided to stick to local things to do and with the museum being 10 minutes from home it was ideal. It was great to get up close to lots of well known planes and get really close to one of my favourites, the Vulcan. With just three of us there at the same... More

Had a fantastic few hours wandering around here with my grandson on "Open Day". The voluntary staff were really knowledgeable & helpful & it was certainly a "value for money" experience :-)

Spent a few hours at this museum enjoying all the aircraft on display even though the weather was bad. We really enjoyed seeing the Avro Vulcan and getting shown around the cockpit was amazing. The guide was superb and answered all our questions. We also visited the cockpit on the Argosy and was given a interesting tour by the guide.... More

We took our almost five year old twin grandsons and all enjoyed the visit immensely, the boys loved being able to climb into the cockpit of an aeroplane and a helicopter. The Avro Vulcan is most impressive, and there were a lot more planes there that we thought would be the case. As we had two small boys with the... More
