  • Great place the crew is very kindly and the kids enjoy the exhibition
  • Excellent ,well worth a visit. Seeing a spitfire up close was worth the trip in itself.
  • Interesting hodge-podge of aircraft in various states of restoration, if you happen to be in the area it's worth stopping by if you're an aviation enthusiast. The cafe is only a few vending machines, so don't plan on finding a meal there.
  • It's a lovely place to visit. And some interesting items.
  • Best aviation museum with great exhibits
