This is a small aviation museum that is focussed on First World war airplanes . This is the highlight of a nice collection and the variety and condition is impressive . Added value to the vista comes from the enthusiasm and knowledge of the attentive staff. I will go back when I next visit VB.

Air show is a must. Kids might get bored after an hour. Needs more displays and stuff to do indoors. Double decker bus tour is fun for the whole family.

WW 1 and 2 planes on display and most fly at certain times of year which was on Saturday and Sunday 10-4/5. Saw corsair up close finally and it is a big plane for 1 pilot. Lots of static displays of Nazi WWII planes too. Too much to see in the short time we were there so planning for May... More

We were there for a two day air show, and attended the second day. The displays in the museum are excellent period pieces. The museum is a step back in aviation history.

The museum has a flying DH Mosquito. As I write this I believe there are only 2 flying (and that may be wrong, it may just be the one here). It also has a wonderful Focke-Wulf 190 in stunning condition and also flyable, as is the Mossie. It if were just these two it would be great - they are... More

Totally amazing place. Being several times guests at a beach house in Sandbridge it was coincidence that we read about this museum in the Daily Mail in UK. It has airplanes from first flight to WW1/WW2. All housed in either purpose built brick hangers (2 on either side of entrance) or hangers rescued from WW2 (2 exhibition hangers and one... More

I gave this five stars not just because this is such an impressive collection of rare military aircraft but because I was so impressed with the knowledge and enthusiasm of the volunteers. Steve went out of his way to engage and inform me and my elderly father-in-law (WWII vet). Thank you Steve!
