This was not what I had expected. How had they crammed so much in? Fascinating displays about the history of flying in the army, as well as exhibits from different conflicts. Great planes and lots of simulators to try out (helicopter, bi-plane and shooting). We spent just under 2 hours here and had to rush a little as it was... More

Fine for all weathers ,you can spend hours in the Museum with helicopters and different scenes of all situations where the Army Air Core flew. The excellent cafe has a viewing balcony. There is plenty to keep the children occupied.

I did not know what to expect from this museum as I had driven past it a few times, but never went in. It is not a massive collection, but all the same it has what matters by giving you a comprehensive and concise history of how flight was used in the army from the 1800's to the present day.... More

I visited with two small children in the last week. Initial impressions were a bit mixed - the price is probably towards the top end of what I'd pay, and we then got accosted by someone doing a 'survey' which took a few minutes before we could go in, and didn't seem to be optional! (We also did a follow-up... More

We expect a lot from museums these days - a few bits of genuine kit and information boards won't do, especially for very young children - the museum is well-run, informative and obviously has its heart in the right place - the only problem is it doesn't communicate its history as well as Duxford, the IWM or even Portsmouth historic...

Excellent attraction - we thoroughly enjoyed it. Plus they have a really nice cafe over looking the airfield. We had lunch and watched the planes and helicopters. There's also an aviation themed playground for the children, which they loved. Definitely worth a visit.

Family day out to the Museum of Army Flying today....we've been to similar museums (or so we thought!) and have been in and out in an hour. This was different, we started with a really nice lunch in the restaurant - the restaurant was extremely busy, lots of cadets on their lunch break, but what polite and lovely young adults!... More

This museum covers a much greater area than you would expect from the modest entrance and buildings that you see as you pull in to the car park. This museum charts the origins and history of flying for military purposes with a really well balanced set of written personal accounts from some of the early pioneers, imaginative and interesting displays...

We took our two teenage sons to the Museum of Army flying today. What we found was a well presented exhibit covering all aspects of Army Aviation from the Boer War up to the present day. There are numerous aircraft on display, including a really interesting section on The Glider Pilot Regiment during WW2. A number of easy to operate... More
