  • We can't recommend this museum enough. It's full of history from aircraft parts found after D-Day and 3 static aircraft. There are a Spitfire made up of genuine and remanufactured parts, a FW190...

  • We visited the museum and took a guided tour of 12€. 100% worth it. The guide was super knowledgeable and passionate about the pieces in the museum. The tour took about 2 hours since it was low season and very quiet but the stories he told were fascinating even for my girlfriend who's not into history per se at all. So if you want to visit a not so dry WW2 museum, go to this one.
  • Nice small museum with a few artefacts from WW2. Focused on the air assets and you do get the chance - at extra cost of course - to sit in various cockpits etc. Eg. In an original spitfire cockpit....
  • A fantastic place too visit. Loads of history and stories of the brave men from the landings..being in a ww2 german aircraft hanger makes it more interesting. And I sat in a spitfire
  • +++ Very fun and François was a very good tour guide. They also had fun activity's. You could actually sit in the WW2 vehicles. 5 out of 5! +++
  • Great guide and experience! Not very crowded, we were able to drive over on a Tuesday afternoon and spent about an hour or so. Worth the time and price.
