“Educational & fun!”
Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

Great 1/2 day out whatever the weather!
Easy to find & good value.
The staff are mainly retired servicemen. They go out of their way to share their stories & interact with the children.
Lots of hands on / interactive displays for the children + adults!
Don't delay. Visit ASAP!

“An awesome museum - a must see”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

We have visited many museums of Military Aircraft, such as Duxford and while this is not as extensive as Duxford and other museums, it would have to rate as one of the best for its size that we have visited.
The staff, mostly volunteers are engaging and enthusiastic, which helps to bring the displays to life. Their knowledge and personal experiences with the Aircraft on display makes the visit to this museum that much more memorable.
A must see if your in the area, as the displays are so well presented, and the staff so helpful and engaging.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

Not to be missed.
There is so much to see and discover.
Tangmere was a very important airfield during WW2 and there is days worth of stuff to investigate.

“Fantastic Museum”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

Visited this museum on 13th July 2014 and had a very enjoyable time . Staff were very friendly and helpful , particularly the engineer who was spray painting the Harrier GR.3 . Unfortunately I did not ask his name , but many thanks for allowing me to go behind the fence to get some photo's . Some museums are a bit strict with these things but not the case here . The museum itself is very interesting and contains much more material than I had thought before my visit . Also many interesting aircraft on display both inside and out along with a very nice and clean cafeteria and picnic area make this a museum to visit again . Thanks for a great afternoon and keep up the good work !

“Disappointed.”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

Not easy to find, with the entrance tucked back off the main road. Few aircraft outside which you could look at from a fence. Thought the entrance fee of £9 per adult was more than I expected to pay. Left really disappointed. Perhaps expectation was too great.
