  • Excellent day out for the air minded. Good for kids...the big kids loved it too!
  • A fantastic piece of wartime history which is well worth a visit, run by a dedicated, friendly and knowledgeable staff.
  • Welcoming. Good history of flying in Scotland and impact on rest of UK. Needs funding to bring improve.
  • Gates open so you could look around the small exterior display of 2 planes, 2 guns and a pill box but Museum closed & good job because at £5:50 each seamed a bit excessive.
  • Great place to get up close to local aviation history
