  • Really interesting place. U watch the film's see these planes on telly,. Always wanted to see them, well worth the drive and visit. 
  • We visited on a Saturday morning. The lady on reception was very friendly and helpful. Inside the hangars it was cool and she recommended getting a coat which we did. A fascinating collection of machi...  more »
  • I think it was much more exhibits guided tours so well for good. Just more external rather than internal space of the aircraft exhibited cold enough heating has not been too cold throughout the viewing.

  • What a great place to visit ! Have been several times with the family and always have a good time. Went on there Halloween Sunday and lots of effort had been put in by there staff to make it a great day for everyone. Good food on site at very good prices. Staff are helpful and friendly. Have a look for special event days and helicopter rides. Have fun!
  • Great place to visit,. Very interesting with lots to learn about helicopters. Lots of helicopters to see and enter on open cockpit days (recommended). My 5 yr old son was amazed at how many different types there are. The staff that we spoke to were really helpful and very friendly.
  • Exciting to be up close to massive helicopters. Nice hotel for meals and we'll stocked souvenir shop. So much to learn here.
  • Full disclosure, i'm a mechanical geek ! I like nothing better than looking and reading about machines. The museum has a large collections of helicopters that you can really get close to, if you like to touch and feel your history this will rock your boat. We went on a open cockpit day so there were more things going on than normal, drone racing and computer simulators making it more interactive. For the money this is not going to entertain your family for the day, but that said you will not see this many helicopters anywhere else. The cafe decor is a little tired, but ok food at good prices, the museum is working for better facilitates.
  • Fantastic collection of aircraft. Super conservation work going on.
