  • Fantastic visit to this museum. Really captured the imagination of our 6yr old nephew. He was able to sit in the pilot seat of a helicopter, fly a jet simulator and climb aboard a Herald Dart passenger plane once flown by the Duke of Edinburgh. The staff of volunteers are very welcoming and friendly and happy to talk about the aircraft and their history. They are very passionate and knowledgeable about their exhibits. Thoroughly recommend visiting this lovely and interesting museum, we all had a great time and on leaving our nephew asked if we could come back tomorrow.
  • Mr partner is ex RAF and he loved this museum, partly because it wasn't just military aircraft, there are commercial aircraft there too. We also liked the volunteers who were a mine of information, and I liked the corner dedicated to Biro pens and our little girl liked making pretend cups of coffee on board the plane and pretending to be an air hostess :-)
  • This is the best museum of Aviation in that area. Learn about how aviation started and the so many people who have died in developing aviation.
  • Very good if you're interested in the history of Woodley aerodrome.
  • Staff super enthusiastic, really nice guide. Some remarkable aircraft on display. Small but worth your time.
