We had a lovely day out. We really enjoyed all of the brilliant exhibits!
You can see the aircraft being restored and interesting exhibits.
Ease of access to exhibits, so many aircraft open. Very relaxed atmosphere and great quality of information.
Touching the last remaining part of a Sea Hornet was very special
I loved being able to get really close to the exhibits.
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 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.
We had a great visit and the kids really loved getting in the planes!
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.
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.
