There's an offer on at the moment for entrance which is becomes a pass for the whole year. This is great as we have two children aged 5 and 21 months. If we were closer we'd be back a few times more. The museum was a great outing for a day with changeable weather with two young children. The helicopters... More

Fantastic to hear you had a great day out and are pleased with our offer of annual return - we do hope to see you back soon with the kids! We are sorry you found the inside play area dusty - these are cleaned daily but we will make sure this is addressed. We are also working through a plan... More

Whether you have any personal reasons for visiting this particular museum, or just curious to see a fantastically well and informatively presented visitor attraction, you will not be disappointed. Superbly presented in all areas and with examples of many aircraft and helicopters this museum will interest all ages and all those curious to know more about the aviation section of... More

We took our 4 year old grandson here on a wet day wondering if it would be of any interest/be too old for him, apart from his fascination for helicopters but there is something here for all age groups. We all really enjoyed it especially as it seems more extensive than the last time my wife and I visited. Entry... More

If you're at all interested in flying, or the armed services then visit this gem. There's so much to see from the history of ballooning and early flight, the formation of the Royal Flying Corps, the gliders used in WW11 right through to the modern day Apache attack helicopter. Most of the information is in static display cabinets but there's... More

Very interesting and informative place - even the girls enjoyed it! Loads to see and beautifully presented. Lovely meal in the cafe after as well. Will be back next time we're in the area

We started off in the cafe. Didn't relise until later walking around the exhibition that there was a lift to the upper floor where you can access the cafe. I took the stairs😁 not easy to do, but with rails both sides I slowly did it. Cafe was clean, we had cooked meals that was brought to the tables freshly... More

I visited the museum today with a party of retired people. We all enjoyed the exhibition very much and everyone found something to interest them. Particular mention of the cafe, which is excellent both in terms of food and accommodation. We sat outside on the balcony and watched the helicopters while enjoying a good lunch. We stayed four hours and... More

A collection of equipment and machines from the days of the Royal Flying Corps to the present. There are plenty of "hands on" exhibits to entertain youngsters and examples of every aircraft used by the Army. A minor gripe is the very small content relating to the Technical support essential to such a branch.

We went with a group of friends for a day out in glorious September weather and loved the whole experience. We paid extra for a group guide who was very informative and told us a lot more of what lay behind the exhibitions and plaques. The cafe did us proud too - lovely good, honest grub and served by very... More

We were expecting to stop a few hours and stayed all day. Museums like this are usually short affairs, but when you are faced with the museum exhibitions, videos in the cinema, a quality cafe, outdoor play area and flying demos, it really turns into a big day out! The exhibitions were top quality and covered the full history from... More
