Don't miss this if you have any interest in aviation. Very good indoor an outdoor displays with some rare types not seen elsewhere. It's a pity that most of the aircraft are in the open and subject to weather damage , but all appear to be well maintained by the very friendly and helpfull volunteer staff. Cafe prices are reasonable... More

Our family loved this museum. The children were able to get into the cockpit of some familiar aircraft, and the knowledge from the museum guides added to the enjoyment of our day. The indoor exhibits were good and plentiful and kept our teenage son and 8 year old daughter entertained. Plenty of opportunities to get up close with the aircraft;... More

Visited Midland Air Museum for second time and was just as impressed as first time. All the guides were volunteers and very enthusiastic in their interest in aeroplanes and their desire to make sure everyone had a great visit. Went with a group that included disabled people and all found it really enjoyable. There were some areas that were not... More

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

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
