A great little museum with knowledgeable and attentive staff. Some rare planes to see and some open cockpits to explore. Vulcan and Argosy open during our visit. Many thanks to Keith who, from the Argosy cockpit, told us about most of the aircraft onsite and gave us a fantastic tour of the Vulcan and Argosy. The Whittle collection is interesting... More

The museum is run by enthusiasts and volunteers and houses a fantastic collection of aircraft and a wide range of items connected with local aviation history and the history of the jet engine. It is well worth the entrance fee and well worth taking the time to look at all the aircraft and exhibits as there is so much to... More

This is good for a couple of hours with children or several hours if you are an aeroplane anorak. You can experience a range of aircraft from the past and getting to sit in an Argos or a Vulcan bomber. It could do with more hands on for the kids and more planes open to wander round. I have visited... More

It cost just over £14 to enter this museum for one adults and three children, which is excellent value for money. Most of the exhibits are outside, so it's best to go when the weather is going to be dry. Unfortunately we didn't get to go inside the Vulcan cockpit, which was my main regret. Some of the exhibits outside... More

Exceptionallly helpful staff. My 12 year old and I got to sit in no less than FIVE cockpits , including the Vulcan! That was worth the admission prices alone. The Vulcan is the highlight but there are many really interesting jets. Lightning,Sabre, Starfighter, and many more. So nice that you can get hands on the aircraft and the exhibits are... More

This is a gret place to visit, particularly the dads since they have good collection of aircraft including a Vulcan bomber which my friend and I were able to sit in the cockpit. Not sure about young children but certainly a family with teen should be interested and grandpa. Pick a fine day since a lot of the xhibits are... More

A great place to visit, whether you're a fan of aviation or not. Excellent exhibits and story-telling through models, news clippings and exhibits. The outdoor exhibits (planes) are particularly fascinating. The only issue was the queue to get into the Vulcan, two at a time, and then waiting over 30 mins for each couple to come back down - we...

This was our 3rd visit and each time the staff have been excellent. The Vulcan visit is not to be missed. Had a cuppa and a sandwich in the cafe, very nice.
