New Signs of the Times
New signage is being provided for the museum by the Herts County Highways Department. There will be a double-sided one at the main entrance lane off the road from the M25 J22 to Potters Bar, plus others directing visitors to the car park.
I think this was the big attraction for me.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.
A truly great collection and friendly, enthusiastic volunteers.
We had a lovely day out. We really enjoyed all of the brilliant exhibits!
Very relaxed atmosphere and great quality of information.
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.
I liked the Horsa Glider.
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!
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.
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.
We had a great visit and the kids really loved all of it!
