My husband is interested in the Mosquito aircraft and so we visited the museum. The displays ate well done and there were several volunteers to ask questions and talk with about the airplanes. It was a great experience.

A small museum dedicated to the the de Havilland aircraft company. A fantastic little museum, that will take about half a day to visit. Really interesting, and you'll get to sit in some planes. A great museum

Sorry, cannot remember. I thought there was an entrance fee but I may well be wrong. It may be on their web-site. Well worth it whatever it is.
