This is very typical of air museums - it appears to be run by very enthusiastic and dedicated people most likely volunteers. The exhibits are reasonably well organised and there's a lot to see. As you walk around interesting objects pop up from nowhere. There is very much a jet engine theme which is appropriate given the Sir Frank Whittle... More

Wonderful collection of local and international aircraft all in reasonable order. Yes, some need a little tlc, and some need a lot of it, but still well worth the time if you enjoy looking at aeroplanes. Some very close ties with the Coventry area as the Argosy and a few others were manufactured here. A note of warning: It is... More

Been here on many occasions and love the fact that it has so many different aircraft and there are some that you can go inside. The staff are very helpful and always there to answer questions. Well worth a visit, even if you're not a big fan of aircraft. Great for children too.

My wife enjoyed going into the pilots seat of a 1950 civil airliner. Very interesting displays. Shame there was a queue to get into both the Victor and the Vulcan.

Just brilliant. Something for everyone to see. Brilliant if you're mad on engines and planes and models, and the local area when things were made there, and interesting if you just wanted a different day out. Well worth the entry fee as we were there three hours. So much was crammed into every space. Wherever you turned was a part... More

We visited with our 7 year old and our 1 year old, lots to look at and lots of info to read. The kids loved going inside the planes and a guide took our daughter in the cockpit of one of the planes and explained about the plane, the pilot and all the controls etc. He was really friendly and...
