  • Well worth a visit, lots of very interesting exhibits and many which you can get in yourself. The staff on hand really seem to care about the aircraft and knowing as much as they can about them and ho...  more »

  • We chose a cold day to visit, which was an unfortunate choice because most of the exhibits are outside and the main display hangar had the doors permanently open. I am sure that this was not a ploy to...  more »

  • You'll be pleasantly surprised at the range of exhibits in this small but very interesting museum. Unlike larger museums, you can interact and sit inside some aircrafts. Highlight was getting inside a Vulcan.
  • Friendly staff that are knowledgeable and welcoming. Amazing Vulcan experience. I really love all the hands on experiences and the amount of cockpits you get to sit in. Really brings your visit alive. Great shop to top it all off. Would definitely recommend
  • Some interesting exhibits and displays. Feels more like a collection of old objects and components than a museum. Good for the price. Most aircraft need a lot of attention, but some unusual aircraft here.
  • An excellent air museum. With Frank Whittle being a Coventry and nearby Leamington lad, it is themed around early jet engines and jet aircraft, particularly aircraft associated with the post war Baggington air field. The museum has a large hanger chock full of aircraft, engines and assorted bits and pieces and a display on Whittle and a large field outside full of aircraft. Off the top of my head aircraft - Hunter Sea Hawk, Javelin, DH110, Meteor, Vulcan, Lightening, Argosy, Canberra, T33, F104, F86, Gannet, Viscount, Phantom, Harrier, and many more I can't remember! If a guide is available you can climb into the Vulcan. I've sat in the pilots seat, but last time I went (it is near me) they weren't allowing people into the front seats because some one with limited mobility couldn't get themselves out! Hope they sort that one out and let visitors into the seats again. A must visit if you are in Coventry.
  • must visit. Lots of aircrafts, some of them can be visited inside. Nearby is the roman fort, also nice to visit
