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.
It’s great to have largely unrestricted access throughout the museum and exhibits.
Touching the last remaining part of a Sea Hornet was very special
As a Hertfordshire lad by birth, I should have known about this place years ago. But glad I’ve found it now. Many have described it as a ‘Gem’ and it really is. It’s so important that the memory and history of the great De Havilland organisation is remembered and passed on to future generations.
I especially liked the planes you could go into which showed how people used to travel by air!! There are lots of curators around who are only too pleased to give information on the history of the various exhibits. Well worth the entrance fee!
We had a great visit and the kids really loved getting in the planes!
If you are interested in the history of aviation in the UK then this is an absolute must visit place. It follows the history of the Dr Havilland family’s passion for flying developing into manufacturing their own airplanes.
Ease of access to exhibits, so many aircraft open. Very relaxed atmosphere and great quality of information.
I loved being able to get really close to the exhibits.
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.
