  • Welcoming, good value, amazing collection and some excellent exhibitions. In winter the planes are stuffed in the hanger though and some can be difficult to fully appreciate.
  • Yorkshire air museum was brilliant aircraft museum. When I first time went to Yorkshire air museum back 2011 I was 15 years old back then I was with my dad and my brother and sister. My favourite aircraft is the Supermarine spitfire and handley page Halifax and victor bombers and hawker hurricane and harrier planes. I came back to the air museum in 2015 I was with my Carey friend then I came again in 2016. I loved that air museum I love it.
  • Fantastic little museum which deserves so much more help and support, well worth the entrance fee and return again for no charge within a year, if you gift aid. Excellent and very professional displays and exhibits. An absolute must for all military, and history buffs as well as aircraft enthusiasts.
  • Great exhibits and very knowledgeable staff, could have listened to them allday.
  • A great day out, very informative and interactive. Fun for the whole family.
