A very enjoyable place to visit. The museum is well laid out with dozen of aircraft on display. Several are accessible to walk into to see the innards, cockpit etc. Some are accessible by stairs to peer in from outside. Also displayed are lots of engines and a few working models. The thing that makes this so enjoyable are the... More

After 2 and a half hours my husband had to be dragged from the place, he could have spent the whole day there. 40 minutes was long enough for the rest of the family, however, a coffee machine, tv and colouring-in station meant we were kept entertained until he finished.

The collection of aircarft and memorabilia is amazing. Im not an aircraft enthusiast but thoroughly enjoyed wandering through the extensive display. Had planes of all descriptions, helicopters and ultra lights. Good for children & adults.

We have visited this air museum more than 10 times in the last two years, it always impresses, the staff are friendly and helpful. Our twin boys would go every week if they could. We always learn something new and there always seems to be something going on. A major plus is that it costs just $13 to get in!

Amazing collection of historic and not-so-historic aircraft. Many are in the process of restoration. There are some gems - a full-sized F111, Mirage etc but also rarities like the Beechcraft Starship, and Guy Gibson's Log Book - the RAF Wing Commander who led the Dambusters 617 Squadron to its memorable missions over the Ruhr in WW2. Lots to see and... More

This place is full of planes. All sizes. All types,but my favourite is the F111. This museum is one of a few to have a full size F111. The volunteers are very knowledgeable and enjoy a chat about this great place

It's a very interesting place to visit especially for aircraft enthusiasts. The planes on display are excellent, the work that has gone into restoring them is incredible all thanks to volunteers. The days they run the engines is not to be missed

A very laid back museum and it costs 13 dollars or 10 if senior, fascinating looking at the old aircrafts and being able to climb up and look into cockpit is awesome and they have a good selection of planes and articles to browse. They have a great man shed and it was good to see so many men repairing... More
