    We are a family of 3. We went to the aviation museum as we have a keen interest in all things aviation-wise. The cost of entry is very modest and so we didn't expect much. What a surprise.... a Vulcan...  more »

    This is a little gem of a museum for flight enthusiasts - really brought to life by the enthusiasm of the volunteers and their love of the aircraft they are restoring. Great collection of airplanes an...  more »

  • Nice local aviation museum. Tours of Nimrod and Vulcan are excellent, and definately worth the small additional fee to be taken around them. Tours are not always available though (dependant on them having appropriately trained volunteers in), so would recommend phoning ahead to check if you're interested in this. Small, inexpensive cafe selling drinks and prepackaged cakes.
  • A great morning/afternoon out, too small for a day, well priced, fantastically interesting exhibits. Great to get close to some RAF history including a Vulcan in amazing condition.
  • Well i been a member here for years since I was 12 and now I am 36 this year I have seen this museum gone from strength to strength more and more things to see and do I have made so many good friends there meet so many good people and yes I am even surprised sometimes on how much people know and love this museum and the best part it's always going to keep going forever and people always to return to see people and get a good view of the airport we when the red arrows are in or it's very nice on a summers day .
  • Having been here many years ago I decided I wanted to go again. Went with my girlfriend and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Museum itself is crammed full of stuff - we could literally have spent hours there! Outside even better with all the planes etc. on show. Recommend paying the extra couple of quid to go inside the Vulcan - we even had a chat when inside with one of the old Vulcan Captains! Well worth it - so cheap to get in and you wont be disappointed. Would like to go back again this year to have a look round the Nimrod (didn't have enough time) Cracking little place!
  • A very informative small museum with enthusiastic volunteer guides.
