A fine collection of aircraft and aviation related exhibits, including some rare examples, e.g. the de Havilland Vampire F.1. Quite a number of the aircraft you can sit in or look around inside which is good, e.g. the Vulcan. Most of the aircraft are outside...More

Good fun exploring the museum with the family. The children loved looking around the different aeroplanes and models. Getting to go inside the Vulcan was amazing. The staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. Good fun trip.
