Having been a fan of this museum for quite a few years and having attended many talks myself and my boyfriend attended the talk by Staff Sergeant Peter Clarke about his life as a glider pilot in the2nd World War and Assisted by Paul Bever. It was a memorable evening and as always well arranged by the museum staff. The... More

My young kids (3 and 1) love the museum, it's a relaxed atmosphere with helicopters to climb in, children's areas indoors and out and their favourite cafe around. We've bought an annual ticket and have been several times already.

I am a bit biased as I learnt to fly there as a Royal Marine in 1965. I bought a Swedish Family there to see the museum. Their young son was besotted with all the exhibits which are displayed very well. A visit to the cafe also gave a good view over the active airfield

Hidden just off the A343 just east of Middle Wallop is one of the finest aviation museums to any nation.s army. I could have easily spent five hours or more going through the exhibits, displays and interactive activities in this wonderful museum. AND, it is situated right outside the home of British Army Aviation. If you time it right and... More

We spent the last day of the kids half term here and had a great time. I have 5 year old twins who like to be entertained and we spent nearly 5 hours here. I do agree that some of the exhibits and information boards do look a little tired and dusty but it added a little charm for me.... More

As the proprietor of a local care home with three senior citizen guys, finding a boys day out can be challenging, but after discovering the senior discount and the annual ticket...just for the cost of the first fee, we have become regulars...we even made a trip during the half term and there was room for us. The guys upon their... More

We spent a very interesting day at this museum during our grandchildren's half term hols. The children loved the education area and assisted glider-making. They also loved the interactive exhibits and the simulators. It proved a nice break from all the written stuff that kids seem to tire of so easily at these places. We agree that the entry price...

nicely laid out museum - also enjoyed a meal in the cafe'. Some areas were reminded us of the work done by gliders in WWII. The new deadly Apache makes you think you would not want to be in a tank if you were facing Apache helicopters.

It was a bit of a dismal, rainy, day so we were in the area and decided to give it a visit. Very worthwile, lots of interesting displays and lots of interaction for children (although ours are grown up). Senior discount made it very good value. If youu gift aid your entrance fee, you can come back for a free... More

The entry price is fine. The curating and reception staff are reasonably courteous and attentive. The activities are almost OK. The location is great (a live military airfield). However, the exhibits are very tired, dusty and inaccessible. Several had poor and shoddy explanation boards.There were many sections either roped off or not working. No point in having a hands-on exhibit... More

Dear Language Teacher and Foreign Military Student I am really sorry that your visit didn't go well, especially as others visiting on the same day (assuming you visited on 20 Feb) had such a good time - at least according to their Trip Adviser reports. You may be interested to know that we are embarking on a substantial programme of... More
