Browse displays of aircraft, engines, uniforms, and model planes throughout three hangars. Keep your eyes peeled for the Hawker Hurricane, recovered from the sea in 1995 after its use in World War II. If you're lucky, you may even see this fully restored plane in action.

    We were lucky enough to receive a free excursion included in our holiday booking and this is where we chose to go, although we would very happily have paid the €7 entry fee. We easily got there on the...  more »

    If you like aviation and a history it's a place you will spend very nice time. Unfortunately collection is not to big but everything is presented in the interesting way. Good for adults and kids. You should plan 30-50 minutes

    Got some nice planes here could do with a little more information on each plane. Good for a hour or so.

    Always enjoy my visits here. A couple new additions since I was last here. All in all still makes for a nice day out. Entry per adult is 7euros. There is a small outhouse with a coffee vending machine, unforunately it seemed to only want to dispense hot water the day I went which was a bit of a shame. All the same look forward to returning in the future.
