  • Hidden in the countryside, yet so close to the M25, this museum is well worth a visit. I had not been for a few years, but there had been some tremendous improvements and additions. The Mosquitos are ...  more »

  • Friendly, dedicated volunteers make this museum a joy to visit. Exhibits include three beautifully restored Mosquito fighter bombers and other De Havilland aircraft that are accessible to enter and touch. Ideal for young children. An important local heritage facility, well worth supporting. Light refreshments available. Sandwiches, cold drinks and hot drinks machine.
  • Brilliant museum, my 8 year old had a great day out. Knowledgeable staff/volunteers. Plenty to see and learn about. Great to be able to actually get inside planes and see the changes over the years, as well as learn more about the role of de Havilland planes, and their pilots and crew in the second world war. A great day out.
  • The home of the original Mosquito and next to the mansion where it was designed. Awesome plane. Awesome WWII wartime history. One of the Greats to visit 20/10.
  • Another gem of British Aviation history. We had a fantastic day absorbing the world shaping technology housed in these modest hangers. Excellent staff, I never dreamed I would ever sit in a DH Sea Vixen cockpit or board a Comet IV. All possible right here. Thanks team. I'll be back.
  • Fantastic, interesting museum. Working museum run by enthusiasts who you can chat to. Very historic. Small enough to take up a few hours and large enough you will want to come back
