    I visited on Sat 22 Jul 2017 as I was visiting parents in nearby Crawley. I deliberately went slowly around, reading nearly every word and looking at nearly every artifact, aiming to not look at every...  more »

  • This is an Aladins cave full of outstanding memorabilia from WW2 non of your usual restored aircraft what you will see brings home how brave the air crews of the allied and Luftwaffe were with some moving accounts of those involved including the bomb disposal unit at the Swansea oil refinery, there is also the Dakota that was used in the Band of Brothers. We took our 6 year old grandson who didn't want to leave we were there for 3 hours and were unable to take in all the different historical accounts so we shall return. The entry fee is £8 for adults and our grandson was let in for free, the staff all of whom are volunteers were friendly and very informative, one of whom makes book markers for children with a 2.2 shell attached to it all for free, and there is a small selection of items for sale.
  • Arrived, got everyone out of the car and went up to pay. They don't take cards. So put everyone back in the car and left as we didn't have enough cash. I'm sure the museum is great and a good reflection of all those involved, but unfortunately we'll never know! Get a card machine guys!!
  • great museum forgot my money so they were quite happy to agree a solution. very interesting
  • Fascinating memorabilia from the 40's. Kept us interested for a good hour
  • Good place to visit to find out about WW2 local history
