Ease of access to exhibits, so many aircraft open. Very relaxed atmosphere and great quality of information.
It’s great to have largely unrestricted access throughout the museum and exhibits.
I think this was the big attraction for me. To be able to peer inside the prototype Mosquito was a real treat as was being able to get very close to the other 2 Mossies they have. As other people have said there are a number of aircraft outside and exposed to the elements and slowly deteriorating but the Museum know this and are fundraising for another hangar.
I loved being able to get really close to the exhibits.
Amazing seeing all the history and the workmanship that goes into the restoration of all the planes. It really is a hands on experience and the volunteers really make this place special. Definitely will return when the new hangar is finished.
It was a very good opportunity to learn about British aviation history and very enjoyable for kids too. I will definitely recommend this museum. True that it could be better kept, but definitely worth it for the aviation enthusiast.
Touching the last remaining part of a Sea Hornet was very special
A truly great collection and friendly, enthusiastic volunteers.
We had a lovely day out. We really enjoyed all of the brilliant exhibits!
We had a great visit and the kids really loved getting in the planes!
