  • This is the worst Museum I have ever visited- it was untidy, full of rusty exhibits and just a few broken down parts of planes ....definitely not worth the entry fee !!  more »
  • We visited yesterday with a friend. We had 4 boys with us aged 3 and 6. The museum is full of interesting planes, helicopters, a fir engine, bus and airport control tower van. Our boys played all sort...  more »
  • Only £6 per adult to get in, good value for money in my opinion. I believe it is run by volunteers, who were all really friendly and helpful. You're allowed to sit in most of the planes which is prett...  more »

  • Fantastic place. Many old style cockpits and you can touch and play with all the buttons. Definitely a must for kids and plane lovers. Very helpful, friendly and enthusiastic staff!
  • Really great experience. staff can't help you enough. plenty to see. loads of planes/bus/ fire engine you can go on. well worth every penny.
  • What a wonderful little gem next to Bournemouth (Hurn) Airport. The car park was full to the brim with people visiting Adventure Wonderland next door but sitting across the car park are these incredible aircraft, which are being carefully maintained and are all accessible to children. My 2 and 3 year olds loved getting into the cockpits, pretending to fly, sitting on a commercial plane and climbing all over the double decker bus! It's all based in one field so not far to walk, but lots of picnic tables int he middle. There is a small shop but no cafe. You can buy hot drinks from a machine in one of the cabins. There are also platforms and a timetable so you can watch the planes take off and land at the airport. We saw an Amani military propeller plane take off which was amazing!
  • Very friendly staff, nice evening out. Won't take up a whole day but the staff are very nice about letting you right up close and inside the planes.
  • Nice little museum with the added benefit of being able to climb in most cockpits!!
