  • Awesome afternoon at Boscombe Down Aircraft Collection, 23 quid for a family ticket and we were all really excited to jump into the cockpits and pilot seats of some wicked fighter planes..!! This place is a hidden gem.. the old boys running it are proper enthusiasts, ask any questions, they show how stuff works.. and they are renovating an old Meteor plane at the end of a hanger, they didn't mind stopping and telling us exactly what they were doing .. my personal favourites were climbing into the Harrier Jump jet and the Tornado cockpits, if you are near Stonehenge or Old Sarum and have just over a couple of hours to spare little boys and big kids will love this, it lit us all up :)I totally recommend it! (Also perfect for a wet day!)
  • An incredible find! Such a treat to find a museum where you're actively encouraged to climb into, touch and play with all of the exhibits! An amazing day out for all of the family... On our visit everyone from Grandad and Nanny to sons and daughters and grandsons and granddaughters thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The staff were extremely welcoming, helpful, knowledgeable and always on hand to give provide some background information to our exploration and play. Having grown up in Southampton and being 35 now my only disappointment is that I didn't find this place sooner! A great day out for an amazing price... I live hundreds of miles away now but can't wait to come back!
  • Great place very friendly staff. The museum itself is fab u are able to get in the plans. Great place to take the kids.
  • What a lovely museum, really tactile, and great to get to sit in the cockpits and press all the buttons. Run by very friendly and helpful team of people
  • Really friendly and helpfull staff. Lots of plane cockpits that kids get actually get in. A real enthusiast driven museum.
