  • Really great museum, with bags of history and character, relevant to the area It kept a 12yr,10yr, and a 6 year old engaged long enough for the grown ups to have a good look round. Very approachable staff Definitely recommend it well worth a visit. I think southampton council and the airport should be investing more in this important part of the city's past ..
  • Lovely museum, the volunteers are very informative and a pleasure to listen to. Being able to sit in some of the cockpits, and the Maureen O'Hara plane is lovely. And there are not many museums where you are encouraged to use your camera.
  • Great place to see for any plane and flight lovers
  • Fantastic museum! I wish I had gone earlier. Very friendly and knowledgeable team and exciting planes housed inside. I particularly enjoyed sitting in the cockpit of two fighter jets. Also, Maureen O'Hara's sea plane is open for exploring. Bring a camera!
  • If you enjoy seeing aeroplanes and are in the area you really must visit! It is full of aviation history. I walked away hoping that one day some billionaire would restore the Beachcomber. If you ask nicely they will let you into the cockpit. You can, of course, see a Spitfire! Australians: you can read about Bert Hinkler here - his Southampton house was moved brick by brick from Southampton to Bundaberg!
