It's amazing how much interesting stuff is packed into this former control tower. It's well worth a visit for anyone with an interest in WW2 aviation, and the people are delightful - and always pleased to see you.

Although a fairly small place, it is full of interest and the volunteers are very knowledgeable and friendly. We were given a talk downstairs, seated in lovely comfortable settees. That really made it a special day.

Its a working aerodrome, but full of WW2 RAF history & the control tower is packed full of memorabilia (upstairs). Very worthwhile for any RAF/WW2 enthusiast.

We didn't realise this was here until my husband had finished his 1 hour flying lesson experience with Lincoln Flight, which was amazing. It's only small but holds a lot of information and items to make you realise just what those men and women did...More

Visited the museum as I had found a connection in Lincoln cathedral. Nice museum in the original control tower. Nice little cafe for a cuppa. Out of the way but peaceful, apart from the odd light aircraft buzzing around.
