Good way to spend a morning, even if you don't know much about aircraft.
There is a good cafe on site. Even better it is free to enter.

This museum is certainly worth visiting. Retired airforce personnel and those who fought in WW II have done a marvelous job at the static installations, planes, clothing etc. Definitely worth visiting.
