We chose a cold day to visit, which was an unfortunate choice because most of the exhibits are outside and the main display hangar had the doors permanently open. I am sure that this was not a ploy to get us into the shop/café to warm up but we did receive a warm welcome and the cakes were excellent. Sadly,... More

En route back from Leicester we made time to visit the Midland Air Museum. Run by enthusiasts and is a similar setup to the DeHavilland Museum on the North part of the M25 First part of the museum is indoors which is a decent collection of vintage jets. You can go upstairs to see more including a lot of model... More

After visiting the pristine RAF Cosford museum with its crowds and commercial feel, Midland was a welcome change. On a sunny Friday morning, there were very few people about. The inside is packed with all sorts of interesting displays. You could say it is congested, but it adds character. The downside that it was difficult to photograph aircraft such as... More

We went on a Sunday. It was fairly quiet. A warm welcome and reasonable entry £17 for two adults and 2 kids. Some fantastic planes to look at. I'm no plane boffin. But they have about 40ish of all ages. The kids wanted to go inside each plane but only 3 were able to view inside don't know if that's... More

A lovely collection of aircraft, great little cafe and gift shop and an overall feeling of being very proud of the area's contribution to the industry. Its a lovely laid back place to meander around and enjoy the well presented exhibits and even watch the goings on in the airport. A proper "dusty round the edges" gem that all museums... More

This is a good place to visit, plenty of aircraft on display some outside such as the Vulcan, and a few inside the covered area. You can wander around at your own pace plenty to look at, and stuff for the youngsters too.

And seems much better now. Met up with son, daughter in law and grandchildren up from Wiltshire for the day which gave Mrs. k and I the icing on the cake. Lots of aircraft and details of the history of aviation for us all. Best was probably the Vulcan bomber as we got up into the cockpit and had a... More

I passed this place early morning a few weeks ago on route to my workplace for the day. I was back that way 2 weeks later and made a point of visiting. I was so glad I did. The museum is a privately run one as far as I can see. The aircraft are mostly outside and show signs of... More
