  • I really enjoyed myself a lot. The planes, tanks and military cars are really worth a visit. It was a bit rainy and the way to the Volcan was a bit muddy but it was definitely worth the effort :D Staf...  more »

  • Fantastic day out, we both really enjoyed it. It was interesting looking at all the different aircraft that other generations of the family have discussed in the past. John was very knowledgable about the trams and gave us a warm welcome 😀
  • A good selection of exhibits fixed wing & rotary for the keen aviation enthusiast. A nice group of motivated volunteers doing their best to maintain aviation history.
  • Great place to spend a few hours. Made my day going in the Vulcan cockpit!! Great exprience!! (Vulcan open every other sat) run on volentry peoples time. Needs more publcilty. Staff very welcoming!!!
  • Hasn't changed much over the years and definitely needs a refresh in places. The land and sea part of the name is stretching things a bit too - it's an aircraft museum first and foremost. If you like early military jets then you'll love it as they have such as Hunters, Sabres, Mysteres etc. and outdoors a Lightning and a Vulcan. Other oddballs include a captured Argentinian Pucara from the Falklands War. The rest of the museum is largely given over to the two World Wars and local history at the time and there are some very interesting stories and exhibits about Zeppelin raids etc. It's no Duxford but it's cheap (£5 adults) and what's there is definitely interesting
  • Fabulous exhibits and a nicely put together museum. Good value. Kept two young boys and two grown ups happily occupied for nearly two hours. Watch out for the ghosts though...
