  • An excellent museum with friendly staff and a good collection of exhibits. The star exhibit for me was the Avro Vulcan. Cockpit tours take place at regular intervals. The gift shop has a good selection of model aircraft and aviation related items. Well worth a visit....
  • Fabulous, Much better than we imagined. The museum was excellent as well as the static displays and able to get up close (and inside some) of the exhibits. Well bone to all involved.
  • Friendly welcome on a rubbish wet day. Kids positively encouraged to climb around in some of the aircraft cockpits (rare). Great vulcan talk in the cockpit. Gem of a place! If only I lived closer.
  • Amazing - I went into a Vulcan Bomber! Knowledgeable and helpful staff made the whole trip a great experience
  • Small display but a lot of info told by enthusiastic volunteers. Fantastic Vulcan bomber.
