  • A little gem tucked away where you'd least expect it. The staff were amazing, even taking us up to the cockpit of the Sandringham. The kids loved it! Thanks Solent Sky team.
  • Loved it. Don't be put off by the outside. There's loads of planes squeezed in. Very interesting and very informative staff.
  • Was nice to go back here for the first time in twenty years. Building could do with some TLC but thats not really important. Make sure you check out the space suit and the cockpit simulator
  • Great little museum with very friendly staff. Some very rare aircraft and you can go on board the Shorts Sandringham. Well worth a visit.
  • This place is a little treasure. So much history and plenty of interesting exhibits. It's a pity their funding isn't is good as it could be because this place has such potential. A little cafe is also on site which works on an honesty box system. They had crisps, biscuits and bars there and a fridge with water, sprite, Fanta orange and Dr. Pepper inside. Nothing fancy, by they're all very cheap so you can't complain! Good way to kill a few hours and explore some cool planes
