“Great display of many aircrafts”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Really enjoyed that Museum!
Great display of many aircrafts of all time.
Free of charge
a bit far from the center of london (zone 4) but well worth the effort.
One of my favourite attractions in London.

“Superb Collection of Aircraft”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Accepting that this type of museum is generally for those with an interest in aircraft I feel that anyone can visit it to appreciate what is an excellent collection, with many great aircraft from the history of the RAF. First the location is not one that you would perhaps associate with this type of museum, but there is ample parking based on a pay and display basis, £2.50 for 3 hours and £3.50 for 3 hours plus. The museum has free entry though which gives access to four main hangers which to see all the aircraft, takes approx' 4 hours as a minimum. There was one main restaurant (we didn't use) and one café which we had a hot drink which seemed reasonably priced. Now for the important bit, as stated the museum has a excellent collection, from the earliest Bleriot to a Eurofighter, however I feel the aircraft from WW2 standout, particularly the Avro Lancaster. All the aircraft are accompanied with detailed information, some with remarkable histories and I am sure there is something of interest for all. This museum reflects an important era of our history, with a focus on 'Our Finest Hour', a museum that not only has a great collection, but is informative and has free entry!

“Interesting museum!”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

My boyfriend is really into almost everything concerning wars and he loved the museum and honestly, so did I :P You have a broad range of different air planes and it's set up quite nicely. You don't pay an entrance fee, but we thought it was worth it to put something in the donation box.
