  • About 20 years ago we visited the RAF Museum in London with our then 10 yr old son, I only wish we knew about Boscombe Down at that time, as he would have spent the entire day climbing into the cockpi...  more »

  • Great day out for both my wife and I. Great being able to get in amongst the displays too rather than tucked away behind ropes or glass.
  • Brilliant, friendly, interactive ... a great day out. Get stuck in and sit in planes enjoying the unusual touch what you want atmosphere ! Fully recommended.
  • Highly recommended visit, with a great collection of classic and more recent historical aircraft.
  • A brilliant down to earth place, great for kids to get up close to lots of aircraft and to not have to worry about not touching stuff - it's practically encouraged here! My five year old loved it...
  • A fantastic experience for children and aviation enthusiasts alike. My 7 & 10yr old sons enjoyed dressing-up in flight suits and wearing helmets to "play" in Tornado, Harrier, Jaguar, Hunter and many other cockpits. They were able to flick switches, move throttle and stick and switch lights on and off. I enjoyed seeing some rare old jets along with more familiar ones from my time working in the RAF and, presently, QinetiQ, at the Empire Test Pilots School, Boscombe Down. The volunteers who look after the exhibits are enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
