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.
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.
We had a lovely day out. We really enjoyed all of the brilliant exhibits!
A truly great collection and friendly, enthusiastic volunteers.
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!
You can see the aircraft being restored and interesting exhibits.
Touching the last remaining part of a Sea Hornet was very special
I liked the Horsa Glider.
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.
We had a great visit and the kids really loved all of it!
