  • Very personal approach to recounting our history, with focus on pilots & people behind the planes & artifacts. To read everything would take days. Well stocked shop for books, models and gifts. Functional petite cafe. Has some WW1 & other interesting exhibits. Extensive prints, pictures & display models.
  • Saturday afternoon was spent in the good company of all the volunteers at the museum. My grandsons and I learnt so much so very interesting. I've visited many times. Can't wait to go back. Thank you all so much. Highly recommend folk visit.
  • A fantastic museum, absolutely packed to the rafters with exhibits and the staff are so passionate about the history and stories from the items We found this place by accident, it is well signposted and easy to find. Free parking is provided Each building is full of fantastic exhibits, many I have never seen anywhere else, best of all are the personal items which add a real unique feel to the place Great place and so reasonable
  • 52 years to reunite all the pieces of our history. Very impressive. A very good job. I recommend this museum.
  • This place took me by surprise! We visited it on Battle of Britain day and it was a day i wont forget. The museum is superbly laid out with incredible detail of pilots, planes and associated items. This place is a MUST for anyone who wants to learn more about the battle. The staff and cafe is fabulous!
