You need a car to get here but when you arrive it is fab. Couple of hours in nostalgia from the past. Exhibits inside and outside. A little cafe for somewhere to eat. A must do when in Cov.

An entertaining day our for a low amount of money. I thoroughly enjoyed it, especially as you got to go inside some of the planes.

I visited the Aviation museum prior to a flight sim experience at www.flyfsm.co.uk and it passed the time perfectly. Lots of old and interesting aircraft to look at and climb aboard. The best bit for me was sitting in the cockpit of the old 'DHL' plane looking over all the dials whilst one of the guides kindly explained the history of the aircraft and answered questions.

A great way to spend, not necessarily a whole day, but a good portion of an extremely sunny day in Coventry. At first the sight of an old aircraft hangar may not be most pleasing to the eye, but soon enough you find it is a lot lot more than just an old hangar. A large collection of the most famous planes and helicopters, as well as opportunities to crawl inside the cockpit of a Vulcan Bomber, coupled with the friendliness and knowledge of all the staff provides an amazing day out for the whole family.

Tip: If you spend a bit of time towards the end of the day loitering around the outside area, you may get invited to climb into a few cockpits not normally open for the public.

This put the cherry on top of a great (half) day out. Definitely worth visiting whether a plane fan or not, you will not be dissapointed.
