This is a superb little aircraft museum that lets you get hands-on with everything - and I mean "hands-on". So many aircraft museums rope off all the cockpits and force you to look at pristine planes from a distance when all you want to do is get in there and flick the switches.
Bournemouth Aviation Museum, while small, lets you sit in the cockpits, play with the controls, make your own aircraft noises, wear the helmets and just have unadulterated unrestricted fun, especially with kids.
I think we need to support attractions like this to give them much-needed money to put some of the attractions under cover in case of bad weather, and to allow them to up-scale and add more aircraft. I will definitely be going back, I love its charm, its location, and I love what it's trying to do.
If the weather is good, give this a try, if you have an interest in jet aircraft and you want to let the inner child roam free, you will love it.
