  • Fantastic Little Museum, loads of displays and information on history of the Twin Airbases, the cold war context and the impact on the local communities. 3 static aircraft too. For a couple of hours of interest, well worth the £5 admission.
  • This is a great museum, Well worth a fiver to get in, remember it's run by volunteers, so every penny they raise goes to keeping the history of this Airfield alive !!! Great Aircraft to view, from the Iconic F4 phantom, to the only A10 "WartHog" on display at a private museum. The main museum is really interesting with plenty of artifacts to view , inc a "Real" Alien :-) The Staff ( Volunteers ) are very friendly, and don't bite, ( even if poked ) so ask plenty of questions, I did and learnt a lot. All in All a cracking place to visit !!! Keep up the good work all :-)
