  • Spent half a day here and loved it. Did the Lancaster tour which is expensive but worth every cent. Very different to other museums because it is built run and maintained by volunteers. Wish the government would help fund this unique museum so it could have a bigger facility and could continue to grow.
  • Really cool spot to take the children for an hour or two. They could sit in one of those helicopters and a few of those airplanes - besides that they are not really supposed to get anything. There's so much to see along with tons of small interesting screens. You will miss a good deal if you rush through it so go at your own pace. There are two big pitches packed with memorabilia. I believe that they can do using a third drop given how packaged both drops are. There's a tiny store selling airplane toys on the way out and I believe that they sell ice creams too. Toilet facilities are accessible.
  • Much bigger than I was expecting. To be honest I was a bit put off by the $15 entry fee, but I was talked into going in. Glad I did - it was great (packed with heaps of planes and everything relating to the service) and the staff were interesting to talk to. I particularly liked the communications displays, as that's my main area of interest.
  • Amazing planes just the sheer size of it all and work that would of been done to make these machines is unbelievable. Great museum. Easy to navigate, would come again. 🤙
  • Great place. I brought my youngest son. He was fascinated. Didn't get to go into the Lancaster bomber like I did with my eldest some years ago, which we were a little disappointed about. You can take a tour but the price is exorbitant. Otherwise interesting though.
