Spent an entire day here with my boys (6 and 3) they loved it and did not want to leave. They especially like interacting with the staff working on and restoring these historic planes.

The Warplane museum is really well put together, the fact the Lancaster, is there is all you need to know, one of only 2 still flying. Additionally the ability to get into and look around the internal spaces, and cocpit is a plus. No digital...More
