  • Great place to visit, excellent exhibits and friendly volunteer staff. Have always been a huge fan of the Vulcan, so really enjoyed visiting the cockpit. No entry fee but donations accepted, also good little cafe and easy to get to.
  • Fascinating place - although small, there is plenty of interest including sit in models and cockpits. Haven't seen this many Meteors since the 50's! It's free, but they need to expand to accommodate the outside planes, which is why anyone who visits should leave a donation. Pity the Javelin FAW4 was parked off-site and only just visible.. Alright, so I'm an anorak, but my 5 year old grandson loved it - especially the the sponge cake.
  • Great place and awesome and helpful people. Loved the visit. It’s bit small but good experience overall
  • Great place. Staff and volunteers were very friendly and helpful, Full of experience and knowledge. Nice to go in the cockpit of the Vulcan bomber and the talk.
  • Fun and informative. Free entry but a contribution is worth it to see a well laid out and run museum detailing an almost forgotten part of Gloucester's history. The planes and plane part are in beautiful condition with informative labelling and displays. The staff, all volunteers, are genuinely enthusiastic.
