  • From the road it does not look much, but get inside and you could spend over half a day of more just trying to view everything. There is lots to see and the whole family should enjoy it.  more »

  • Wow, what a place. So much history. Was pleasantly surprised. The staff are retired personnel and volunteers and were very happy and knowledgeable to answer questions. This place is free but requests a donation. PLEASE GIVE GENEROUSLY.
  • If you are interested in aviation this is the place to go to. Amazing collection of planes outside that you can walk right up to, inside of (the many) hangars crammed with every sort of flying item you could imagine ........ and more Wartime memories everywhere Very well kept site and a pleasure to walk around. Thank you to all the volunteers who make this possible. Finally .... tea and cake available in period setting 5*+ Well done all
  • Great place to see some rare artifacts and aircraft. Great volunteers who are knowledgeable and enthusiastic. If there is one issue it's that they allow dogs in. I appreciate some dogs may be aviation enthusiasts, Oh wait...
  • Great aircraft from the UK and abroad, plus displays about the local bomber squadrons. knowledgeable volunteer staff on hand to answer questions as well. Great stuff for anyone interested in aviation.
  • Much more to this museum than meets the eye ...there are many planes and aircraft related accessories plus "hands on" activities. There is a river walk and shop and tea room too ... you can easily spend two or three hours here. Well worth a visit and although entrance is currently free, do leave a donation to keep this jewel up and running - or flying!
