  • Amazing and rare aircraft that span huge number of years. One of the only places you can still get up close and touch some very rare planes. The team were amazing on our visit and I would highly recommend you go visit. Thanks again for the tour gents
  • Fantastic collection of vintage and historical planes. With multiple accessible models. Very enjoyable to the kids and adults alike. Well worth the visit and deserve more.
  • Wow, this is a real museum. Getting access to the office of the aircraft was amazing. Not sure how often they open them up but it was a real treat. Lots to learn. Not a lot of exhibits but you can see the work that goes into ensuring we can continue to see some of our aviation history.
  • Great relaxed atmosphere. You can enjoy getting in a few aircraft.
  • Cosy little museum. $10ish entry. Dog friendly place.
