  • We took a group of Rainbows to the Museum and had a great day. The staff were so knowledgeable and they have a lot on display. The tour round the Shackleton was impressive. Will go again.
  • I came here as part of a work development day, where we received a tour of the hangar and outside from a couple of the guides. They were very well informed, and happy to answer any questions. All the planes (I think) were previously in service and the staff are working to restore function to the rest. This is a great chance to get an up close look at iconic military planes. Planning to go again for an evening when the engines on working planes are fired up.
  • Brilliant staff, with stories that you want to listen to all day. Great exhibits. We were there 4 hours and another hour would have been great wth my aircraft loving 11yr old
  • If you love airplanes and the aviation world you'll love this place. Children can seat inside cockpits of a variety of different aircrafts! If you time it with other events like "Gatwick families and friends " you get to experience also emergency services like sit in a huge fire brigade truck and operate the water cannons!!!!!! Fantastic!!!!!
  • A very interesting place. It was great to talk to some of the people who actually flew the planes in the museum.
