  • 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!
  • Little museum run by committed volunteers. Lots to see. Great cafe. Nice gift shop with range of secondhand books.
  • Fantastic little museum - don't pass it by. I am biased being an RAF brat, but the amount of history on show is really very good.
  • Terrible service last weekend in the cafe which closes at 4pm . Was told at 3.50pm "sorry, we're cashing up" - I really can't abide this sort of rudeness and indifference towards customers. Typical England and an insult to those who served this country in 1940.
  • Really great small museum containing the iconic aircraft and many other interesting related items.
