  • Great little place to visit. If you are interested in this iconic aircraft or this period in history. Free parking and free admission but donations welcomed and well deserved. Nice cafe and gift shop.
  • I have fond memories of RAF Manston from my days as an Air Cadet. I went back there today to visit the Spitfire and Hurricane Museum. Wow! Fascinating place! All the better for being free admission, though I did make a donation in one of their boxes. The two volunteers on the counter were extremely friendly and welcoming and all in all, I really enjoyed my visit!
  • An excellent little museum that has amassed a great collection of both items and experiences for people to view and learn about. Appears to be staffed by volunteers as well and is also free so all donations are welcome.
  • Great museum. Lots of local but impressive WWII history. Canny cafe also.
  • Brilliant place. Free parking and admission. Plenty of fascinating artifacts to see from ww2, and the Spitfire and Hurricane of course!
