  • Very informative museum setting out the history of the airfield and it's associated activities through the years. With the future of the airfield in doubt I hope that whoever ends up with the land allows the museum to stay and ensure it is kept independent from the memorial. A really good selection of aircraft both complete and cockpits on show, my favourite has to be the F6 Lightning. I would suggest that they are undercharging, I would think that they could easily raise the admission for adults from £2 to £5 without any impact on visitor numbers.
  • Been twice both times getting a ticket was a drama but after that it is a good place worth a look.
  • Very interesting place. Good spot to lose a couple of hours with the family.
  • Had a great day out and really enjoyed all the activities and the food in the cafe was very good too.
  • A fabulous piece of history everyone enjoyed it there and so cheap too
