We are one of the UK's leading museums for British military aviation history. Boasting 40 fixed wing and rotary aircraft on site, we have fascinating exhibits and a wonderful 'Apache Cafe' looking out over the busy Middle Wallop Army Air Corps airfield.

This museum helped us to understand more of the story of the Pegasus Bridge that we visited in Northern France recently,and seeing and feeling, by viewing the interiors of the planes, what it must have felt like,and how scary it must have been to glide in. We saw a Horsa glider(?) at the Pegasus Bridge. How fragile they were! We... More

This is a museum worth visiting if you love the history of pilots/flying. We visit here as often as we can as my brother has a memorial tree here. All the entry fees & volunteers keep this museum open. The memorial garden is a must to see.

What a lovely couple of hours. More if you're not with small children and so can stop to read. Loads of planes, helicopters and much more. Some poignant stories. Games for the kids as well as dressing up and climbing inside the flying machines. Nicely laid out and very interesting. Highly recommended.

We spent three hours at this gem of a museum thinking we would just pop in to break our journey home ! It really is beautifully set out with plenty of interactive things to do - children are very well catered for. Our 10 year old grandson was enthralled by all the planes and the stories that accompanied them. The... More

Potential for a nice morning out, some great exhibits but it all felt a bit crammed in. For any veterans out there do not expect a veterans discount though (unlike other military museums) Also found the lady on the reception to be a bit rude and my family being there seemed a hindrance to her morning.

It's not the largest museum of its type but it's not bad value for money given the entrance fee and the exhibits are generally of a good standard. The cafe is not bad for a snack either.

The museum of Army flying is a nice medium sized museum, it's not a s big as the fleet air arm but it's big enough to keep your interest for an afternoon, the facilities are clean and the staff and volunteers are all very helpful and polite. Our children have dragged us there 4 times now!

Even if you are not particularly interested in military history I think you will find this Museum of interest. It covers all campaigns where flight has played a key role and also covers the human aspect of this type of warfare. There are plenty of interactive exhibits for young children and there is a separate play area too. My young... More

Took the grandchildren there. They were very interested and asked lots of questions about what went on in WW2 - which I lived through - and what is happening at the Middle Wallop these days. My grandson enjoyed trying to fly a helicopter. A super smallish museum cared for by enthusiastic people. There is a cafe there too for a... More
