  • Caf√© food and drink good. Not over priced Good relaxing day out with plenty to see for all the family. Thank you to the volunteers that give there time to show their vehicles and knowledge. Also a thank you to the voluntary staff that help keep the museum going. We need to have volunteers like this to keep our historic and artifacts for our future generations. Well done to all. Lets hope that there are more events to come in the near future. It was unfortunate that the spitfire was unable to do the flight pass.
  • A small museum with an interesting collection of aircraft related memorabilia based around the iconic Spitfire and other aircraft of WWII.
  • A fantastic museum with a Spitfire and Hurricane on display. When you read the many accounts of missions these brave pilots and crew did it really makes you think how much we and future generations owe these heroes some as young as 19 and the ultimate sacrifice that many gave to protect our Country. A truly memorable visit and entry is free.
  • Great place to vist I like to come back have done few times
  • Although it may seem small, the information and items on show are vast.If you spent time to study all of the items it would take more than the average 1hr duration that is reported. The staff are very knowledgeable and helpful. The cafe food is first class and we'll priced. I would return here for the food alone aswell as the exhibits.
