    Absolutely lovely staff, you can ask any questions. One plane outside, everything else is inside. If the weather is miserable, you'll definitely will have a good time inside. It's fun to see everyday ...  more »

  • 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 :-)
  • Staff super enthusiastic, really nice guide. Some remarkable aircraft on display. Small but worth your time.
  • A cultural spot tucked away in Woodley marking a big part of the areas history as a former airfield during WWII. Worth a visit if you're passing by.
  • This was a tiny little nondescript place tucked away but it was absolutely delightful. The volunteers were incredible with information and chats. We didn't expect too much but were very happy when we left after spending around an hour and a half it was a real education.
  • Lots of aircraft models, pictures, objects related to local aviation. A bit crowded, because space is limited.
