“Battle of Britain”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

This is a superb collection of memorabilia from the Battle of Britain and also the two aircraft in two large halls. The collection is building as more and more people donate their possessions to the museum. Once you have had a walk around there's a great little cafe to have lunch or maybe just a snack.

“A lot to see”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

A lot to see and read about. you need a good after noon to take it all in lots and lots to see with Manston airport getting busier and big jets around you. A great place to visit with a cafe/resteraunt to have a drink or eat.
