  • There are two old hangers full of mismatched broken aircraft . No doubt there is alot of history here .but without more modern interactive displays and videos , we got bored very quickly.

  • I visited with my wife and teenage daughters, none of whom are into airplanes. However, we all loved it. Teenage feedback is that being able to sit in nearly all the cockpits makes this a 10 out of 10 exhibition. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and recommend spending about 3 hours here. You could easily enjoy more time if you wanted to. Brilliant!
  • This is an absolute must! An incredible collection of aircraft and memorabilia with such a rich history. Anyone who is remotely interested in aviation will love it here. The ability to climb and sit in some of the cockpits made me feel like a kid in a candy shop. Very few places will let you be as hands on as this. The absolute best part of this museum is the staff, they’re so knowledgeable and enthusiastic in sharing, that it totally made the experience. We expected this to be a short visit and stayed for a few hours, learning and exploring. Loved it.
