Spent a fantastic time at the museum. Wonderful array of various aircraft to explore and sit in. The exhibits are so varied and interesting, the engine room was great. Glad we found such a great place to visit in Doncaster

Pleasantly surprised by the extent of artefacts, fuselages uniforms and models on display. Informative intro by Alan and an interesting logo search we all enjoyed. Lots of cockpits to sit in and two simulators the kids loved. Loved it and spent over 2 hours there.
