  • We all enjoyed visiting this small but fun packed museum. Lots of opportunities to clamber in and out of cockpits and driver cabs, some even whilst dressed up in props. Staff were all very helpful, kn...  more »

  • This is by no means a fast-paced, hi-tech museum and if that's what you're searching for you may well be disappointed. It is however, very hands-on and perfect for a bit of old-fashioned, use your ima...  more »

  • It was nice to be allowed to sit in the cockpits and feel the controls and marvel in what it would have been like for the pilots in that era. All the staff were friendly and enthusiastic. Only a small museum but if you like aircraft it's nice. And by visiting your helping to keep it open.
  • Went with my young family, 3 young boys 18months, 3yrs and 5yrs. They absolutely loved it, we stayed just under 2hrs. The exhibits are like living history. You can get into a good number of the cockpits and the kids loved pretending to fly. The volunteers were so helpful, opening up the planes for us to get in and very knowledgeable too. They gave us a heads up to go to the viewing platform of a Ryanair flight coming in to Bournemouth airport, they said if you get the kids to wave, the pilot would likely wave back, they did and the kids loved it!
  • Great place to spend a few hours. Very friendly and helpful staff. A special thank you to the guys who tried to bump start my car.
  • About an hour or two of entertainment for the family. Great opportunity to get hands on with the planes. The staff are very friendly and informative. Definitely a fair weather activity.
  • A simple display of another era of aircraft. Great to get to sit in the cockpit of most of them. Shop is packed with second hand literature.
