The museum is excellent with many military aviation exhibits to enjoy and knowledgable volunteers to assist in detailing the exhibits history. Open from Spring to Autumn it's definitely well worth a visit, with free entry for a donation.

This is a truly great place to visit if you have any interest in military aviation. The displays are excellent, the information is outstanding and the restored aircraft are beautiful. Very well worth a visit.

A lovely experience. Nice small museum with enthusiastic volunteers. The hotel is connected to the airfield and you may see a Spitfire close up and flying.

i visited Sywell Museum with my grandchildren, 2 girls aged 4 and 7. We were warmly welcomed and the girls were immediately offered an opportunity to sit in a cockpit. This they did, complete with helmets. An excellent photo opportunity. All the controls were explained and the girls were engrossed especially as they could touch the controls. We ventured further into the museum and the models dressed in various uniforms proved very interesting as did the likes of an air raid siren that they could actually work. The amount of war time memorabilia was amazing and so interesting. My girls had lots of questions and it was a very interesting visit. We later visited the mess and had ice cream. We saw a couple of aeroplanes take off and helicopters land. I highly recommend a visit no matter what age you are. Splendid!
