  • Absolutely loved it here kids and adults entertained all day. Lots of information to take in and also lots of planes cars and buildings to visit. Well worth the money we paid £26 for a family and you can come back anytime within 12 months !! I'd of gladly paid this on ever visit. Staff are lovely and pleasant and full of lots of information and always glad to talk. Will definitely visit again 😊😊
  • Great for young and old. Plenty of exhibits to keep the interest, helpful, knowledgeable staff and a good cafe & shop. Spend plenty of time here.
  • Great air museum with some fascinating displays and recreated 1940's rooms. Static displays include Victor, Tornado & many other aircraft. Restaurant has lovely food.
  • My husband & son visited this Museum to pay respect to his father and crew who flew in the Halifax. My husbands father was an Australian Pathfinder pilot, he flew 13 missions in a Halifax before being shot down. The personal guided tour of this plane meant a great deal to them both, thankyou Phil Kemp and team for your comment and care of the Halifax.
  • Great place for a day out with a good selection of aircraft. Takes us to the WW times with the displays and control rooms. The hanger houses some of the massive WW planes. Not much of a choice of food in the canteen.
