Visited today, 7 December. A very enjoyable and informative couple of hours. A reasonable entry fee and polite helpful staff. Our tour guide, Trevor, was knowledgable and able to present the information in a way that kept the interest of those who knew a lot and those who knew a bit. He had an obvious passion for the subject, was... More

If you are interested in military aviation history you should not miss this place. Museum is a part of military airfield so there are certain restriction which you normally do not experience in Duxford for instance. Expert guide who flew on some of those magnificent flying machines gives deep insight look into important technical aspect of aeroplanes, and last but... More

Tours leave the visitor centre every half an hour. Our very knowledgeable guide, Terry kept us informed and entertained with anecdotes and stories of bravery. It was really humbling to see the Spitfires up close and realise that one man sat in the cockpit to fight, knowing that he cold easily be shot down. A good way to spend a... More

This really is worth a visit, the tour of the hangar is conducted by friendly and well informed guides, you will see the Hurricane, Spitfire and Dakota, hear all about the aircraft, see the weaponry and also hear about the exploits of the heroic pilots. Unfortunately the Lancaster bomber is away at the moment but this did not in anyway... More

We visted after the display season so there was a greater chance of catching most of the flight at home. The visitor centre is well set out with many interesting articles, histories and stories. There is a gift shop with a large selection of items available for all ages. The real reason for coming though is to get a chance... More

If you like old aeroplanes this is the place to visit. Book the tour to see the spitfires - the Lancaster is currently in Duxford but they gave us 10% discount because of that. Knowledgeable staff give you the gen on each aircraft, there were people working on them & it would have been nice to know what they were... More

We took two teenage boys and an raf veteran. All were kept interested in an almost two hour talk through the hangar. We then had lovely hot chocolate and cake.

I wouldnt recommend this for younger childen as... More

Very interesting, but as it's a guided tour, if you've got small kids (under 9) I'd pass this one. The guide was great, and the facts were interesting, but at 1.5hrs, it's a long time to walk one side of a hanger. With the Lancaster being re-tailed at Duxford there is a large gap in the inventory however the noise... More
