Allow half a day when visiting here. The Concorde part of the attraction has a lot of information to take in. Almost emotional to see it in person and amazing how they got it in the musuem!

One of the best flight/aviation museums we’ve been to! Unless you plan on zipping through & not reading anything or watching videos, plan on at least 4 hours. The gift shop & cafe are great too! Plan for a very windy outdoors.

Hi Katrina, I agree with the others, certainly no dogs in the hangers or cafe when we were three.
