Visited the museum with my parents, my wife and our four kids. This was a brilliant day out. There are just so many different planes and other exhibits that there is plenty to see. My personal favourite was the Vulcan, where it was possible to go up into the crew cabin, which certainly brought the aircraft to life for our... More

A must place too visit! Went with my 6 year old son and he loved it! For a small entrance free you can sit in a war cockpit and walk around outside into some great aircrafts! Very good and interesting

Lovely museum way bigger than it looks. Lots of planes outside more than we expected. Really nice to be able to sit in the cockpit of one of the plane. Lots of the outside planes had steps that would probably be accessible in better weather so will definitely return. Great morning out.

I had to pop up there to measure parts of one of their aircraft, and photograph others for scaling, also answer a query by our archivist on the fate of another type of helicopter; also to add photos in place of drawings to save drawing time to illustrate Mensa's AvSIG newsletter. The rain held off whilst outside. We were to... More

At £6.50 to get in this is not expensive. So, excellent value. A good collection of aircraft including several EE Lightnings and a Starfighter. Lots of the collection is on loan from the USAF. The collection is not vast but it is all interesting. Staff are friendly and clearly genuine enthusiasts rather than museum employees. On one the staff kindly... More

This museum is decades of bits and pieces collected and restored by volunteers. I was so pleased to see so many old jet fighters like the Hawker Hunter and Lightning. The Vulcan does steal the show and getting so close and under it shows the sheer size of the thing. Its more of a museum run by enthusiasts for enthusiasts.... More

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.
