This museum is definitely worth a visit and is good value for money. The Frank Whittle story is fascinating and fills in many gaps in your knowledge. The collection of aircraft is rather diverse and doesn't really tell a coherent story. That said, there are...More

Good fun exploring the museum with the family. The children loved looking around the different aeroplanes and models. Getting to go inside the Vulcan was amazing. The staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. Good fun trip.

Interesting museum with large collection of paraphenalia as well as mostly military aircraft. This is anorak central if you are 'into' military aircraft. Good model shop and basic, but ok, tearoom.

Great for a single, couple or a family visit. Laid back venue, but crammed with interesting exhibits and friendly staff. We had a detailed account of what it was like to fly in a Vulcan on a mission (incredibly cramped). There are piston and turbine...More
