Lots of British and American planes. The museum starts inside and then moves outside where you can climb into a Vulcan bomber and a large transport plane. Ex-pilots give an informative and friendly talk inside the planes. Good for enthusiasts and novices alike

This was another Dad & son visit here, son is now 6, we go annually as each year he's ready to learn notice something else. He loves the been able to touch things, sitting in the Meteor cockpit and having an adventure is is favourite. For me the staff that sit in the Argosy & Vulcan with you and bring... More

What a super day, despite the ageing of the aircraft the hand on and climb on opportunities made this a real museum not all films and buttons.

This is a great museum - it hasn't tried to become 'modern' and is better as a result - models, good explanations and interesting dioramas complement a superb collection of aircraft. Being able to climb up into the cockpit of a Vulcan Bomber and being able to explore the Argosy are two experiences that few other air museums offer as... More

Not as glitzy as some of the larger air museums but the rarity of the exhibits is staggering. They have a Vulcan, and many "one offs". A Tornado GR4 is currently being prepared for exhibit. Entry fee is reasonable, excellent well stocked shop and a small cafe area. The "true" aircraft enthusiast has to visit this.

A wonderful and well run museum. A very reasonable entrance fee, friendly and helpful staff. Exhibits are well cared for and there is a great range of exhibits for a museum of its size. The cafe is clean and has a basic range of refreshments. The shop is well stocked. Try to visit on an open cockpit day and get... More

This is a great little museum. It was only £6.50 to get in, with free car parking. The staff are excellent, enthusiastic, friendly, helpful and more than happy to talk to you about the aircraft and anything else, had some great chats. Some of the aircraft are opened to look around in, even the Vulcan is opened. If you like... More

This place is a gem for the not so little boys (aged 48) who haven't grown up yet. Its packed full of what I call 'real' jet aircraft. The prime exhibit has to be the Avro Vulcan which, if you're lucky, you can have a guided tour of the cockpit of this beauty. No 'health n safety' rubbish here, if... More

We were going to the Flight Sim company around the corner and decided to pay a visit to the museum. It was well worth it. A surprisingly large number of aircraft here including some modern types. There is a Tornado GR4, which is being re-assembled, it saw service in the Gulf Wars and it was nice to see the museum... More
