To visited the aviation museum on Saturday the 19th and decided to return for the open day/fair that was on the Sunday as well. It has a varied selection of planes on display and the control room and other exhibits have some great memorabilia. I will without doubt be returning when I visit Dumfries again.

The planes and artifacts were interesting, but I think more information about the planes could be added. The control tower was cool, with lots of exhibits to look at and get a feel for what it was like back in that time period. The staff were not very helpful and didn't seem to want to engage in conversation, however it... More

This is a great place for young and old alike. Filled with information on each exhibition. Very cheap price to get in. We bought an annual pass as it was so cheap. Ww2 homework was a breeze after this. Run by volunteers that will tell you all about the museum. Their is a machine in the control tower that has... More

Went here with my girlfriend and 25th may 2014 as we were done from kilbirnie on a weekend break! This was my highlight! For a small museum it's great I can't recommend it enough! Aircrafts look good and the information boards on each craft telling you where she had been in her life added the respect for each craft! All... More

The museum is situated in an area around the Control Tower of the original airfield comprising RAF Dumfries, which closed in the 1960's and was sold to a private investor. Although a bit tight for space, the Museum has an admirable collection of historic aircraft, some restored, others in the process of being so. The Control Tower houses the `museum',... More

Great place for aviation enthusiasts. Holds more uncommon aircraft like a SAAB. Also lets you climb in a cockpit of a full aircraft which is a little unique for aviation museums. Great day out

Its all run by volunteers who have a working knowledge of not only the aircraft but the history. Kids can run jump and play on most of the exibits and the control tower is a step back in time. It has a more than reasonable enterance charge for even the biggest family

The best aviation museum. you could get into so many of the exhibits. Had the best time , getting in and out the different planes. So easy to lose your time here. The tower exhibits could do with more structure and common thread. For all aviation fans , this is a must see.
