“Impressed and very proud”

Davidstow Airfield & Cornwall At War Museum
Ranked #1 of 6 things to do in Camelford
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 27 October 2017 via mobile

We, as a family of 6 with children ageing from 4 to 14 were so pleasantly surprised by the museum, and as a Cornishman myself, so incredibly proud of what Steve has achieved here. The fact the the installations have been recreated at a location so poignant during WWII only emphasises the experience and the sheer quantity and quality of the exhibitions is humbling. My 10yr old son is doing a project on WWII for school and he found oodles of information for his project. We all loved it and happily spent 3 hours looking round and taking it all in. Could have spent longer too. Definitely will be returning. Modest entrance fee meant we didn’t have to recoil in horror when the children asked for gifts from the shop. More than happy to spend money on such a worth while fantastic attraction!!

We visited today as a family of 5. We paid £13 entry fee for 2 x adults and 3 x children (aged 12, 4 and 3).
What a surprise! The welcome was great. We were saluted as we entered the car park! The children loved it!! The volunteers were knowledgable and helpful. The museum was full of things that the children could touch as well as look at. We counted guns and animals on the way round too. We enjoyed a coffee and mid morning treat in the NAAFI popping our money in the honesty box. It was like stepping back in time! We will be back
