  • Really disappointed walked here to find it's closed and judging by the age of the sign the opening hours have been changed for a long time but never updated on here My 4 and 2 year olds are not happy  more »
  • An interesting selection of helicopters from vintage examples to a Soviet era gunship. Not somewhere you'd revisit often as I suspect it doesn't change much, but nice to take the dog somewhere differe...  more »

  • I've been there many times over the years, always enjoyed myself, usually I go there for one of the shows, always good, and entertaining, the staff helpful. The exhibits are well worth seeing and I always seem to learn something new each visit I make. Sometimes I spend all day there. The cafe is excellent value, service is very good as is the shop and staff, who are very helpful, going out of their way to help, especially the disabled. I cannot praise the museum enough. Enjoy your visit, as I do. Best wishes Toby.
  • If you a helicopter fan, or are just curious, this is a great place to spend a few hours. No Sea King, but they have lost least five Soviet helos, including a Hind D. You can get really close to all of the exhibits and they also have open cockpit days. Do not be put off by the low rent look of the entrance - I expect that the place is run on a shoe string, it's well worth the effort. Oh, and your ticket will let you in as many times as you like for 1 year.
  • Great place to see so many helicopters of all shapes and sizes from all around the world. The Russian one's are amazing. Great fun
  • A huge number of helicopters to look at and learn about. Children's playground and opportunities for children to go inside some helicopters. Good, if a bit small, shop and great food.
  • this day was a fantastic day just to see the round the world pilots and we hope they brake the world record they was very kind and had photos take with us god speed the rest of there journey round the world fantastic day thank you to all the staff and crew for making us welcome x
