We were greeted by the owner/curator Mr. Keast, who gave us an enthusiastic personal tour of his extensive collection. The museum is housed in the old WW2 shower blocks on the edge of Davidstow Moor airfield and is far bigger than first meets the eye,...More

We 'popped in' for what we thought would be a quick visit, but spent close to a couple of hours looking at the incredible memorabilia. The 1940's music created an unexpected experience, one that we will always remember. The personal stories and photos are overwhelming,...More

This is an amazing museum that was under several inches of water today yet it was still open. The personal touch is outstanding and brings the exhibits alive. The number of crashed aircraft items is really sobering. I absolutely loved this place.
