Took the grand kids out to this brilliant museum and they loved it. Great to get up close to the exhibits and to see all of the history, which has been put together beautifully. Highly recommend 👍🏻

Not a huge place but very interesting. Planes from over the decades. Well put together with a small reconstruction of a street in the war. Books on the aircraft and models also for sale in a small shop.

We enjoyed visiting the museum which gave the history of the airport at Manston from both the RAF and commercial perspective. An interesting range of aircraft and vehicles to view along with viewing areas to look into some of the aircraft.
