  • Words can not describe how amazing this place is. Totally well worth the visit. Will def be back so much to see and take in. Very educational for children and adults. All volunteers were so helpful and informative
  • What an absolutely awesome place! Friendly and knowledgeable volunteers take time to show you around and tell interesting stories about the various displays... Whether it was Mal telling about ejector seats and clothing or Alan telling about some of the aeroplanes on display, they were able to convey their enthusiasm with knowledge and humour so that the whole family had a great day. The society doesn't have a café, so it would be good to bring a picnic. We ended up staying almost 5 hours and I feel we haven't seen a quarter of what is on display. This place is a real gem! Admission is free, but we decided to become members, which is only £26 per family per year and that gives you a monthly magazine and admission to special meetings. I understand these meetings are things such as talks on specific topics by experts, such as (retired) pilots. Again, a great day out. Warmly recommended!
  • A very good exhibition with helpful and informative staff... A hidden gem if you like history,aircraft or vintage vehicles. It seems a shame that it cannot be advertised properly. Our particular highlight was being allowed to sit in and take photographs in the aircraft. Would highly recommend it to anybody with afew spare hours.
  • Brilliant collection of aircraft. Fascinating info from guides. It's a must see gem hidden away
  • Excellent trip with family over european heritage weekend. Its packed with all things aviation from jet engines to models to radar systems. Theres lots of opportunities to get into the aircraft as well. All the guides were extremely nice, very knowledgable and obvious enthusiasts. Take a run down, you wont regret it.
