We are one of the UK's leading museums for British military aviation history.

Boasting 40 fixed wing and rotary aircraft on site, we have fascinating exhibits and a wonderful 'Apache Cafe' looking out over the busy Middle Wallop Army Air Corps airfield.

We visited this location on a Thursday morning mid week. It is fairly local but we had never visited. I would recommend allowing 2 to 3 hours to visit. It is a small site but has a lot to see and some great examples. You are even able to get inside a helicopter to see what t is like. Lots... More

Whilst on a return trip from Salisbury we found such an excellent museum full of so much information and with each artefact having had care & attention to detail to persevere them all, we will be back during spring / Summer. There is a lovely cafe on site with extremely well priced menu allowing you to enjoy a full day... More

Stuck with elderly father on New Years Day with rain pelting down decided to visit this museum also with hubby. Expected it to be a boys day out and be really bored. Greeted by helpful and friendly staff who also gave us an annual pass included in our entry payment. From first entering the museum, which is in a massive... More

Third visit , always see or read something new. Have seen helicopters taking off and landing from the good view from the cafe. Nice meal and friendly staff.

Many people may combine a visit here with a visit to Bovington Tank Museum (about an hour away)... but they are worlds apart. While the Tank Museum is a top notch world class attraction, the Museum of Army Flying is an almost sad, run down place where clearly the 'effort' and 'desire' is gone to provide a great visitor experience....

MuseumArmyFlying, Manager at Museum of Army Flying, responded to this review

We read all reviews and take careful note of them. The Museum of Army Flying certainly needs updating. We estimate that it will require about £4.6m and 4 years work to bring the Museum fully up to date but we cannot fund this scale of improvement from current resources. Last year we submitted a bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund... More

Thought we'd try the all day breakfast. It was beautifully presented but the sausages and eggs were overcooked. A good variety of food and reasonably priced. It was clean and warm with great views over the airfield and a small children's play area. Would be lovely in the summer with the outside seating area watching the helicopters

A great place to visit on a rainy day. We were on site for three hours but could have spent longer. Signage and displays are informative, but could benefit from professional attention. The museum covers a broad range including balloon, kite and early aircraft flight history, including the Royal Flying Corps. For the ladies, the 1940s house was of real... More

From the outside it looks quite small but believe there is so much packed inside. The kids loved it as so did I. There is plenty of parking and a cafe with friendly staff offering great food, which I have also used several times for business meetings. The cafe over looks the army flying core base, you can watch Apache... More

Although never hearing of this attraction, the size is deceptive coupled with the airfield, makes a large attraction. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and explained the layout of the museum before starting off to explore. The history presented is very detailed but in an interesting way with different types of exhibits including interactive ones. There were plenty of... More

We attended with a Groupon deal. The facilities are great. History of army aircraft which was fascinating and inspiring. We also enjoyed the onsite cafe where it was basic but great portions and value. What a great place to go for an afternoon out and we would recommend and go again.
