Touching the last remaining part of a Sea Hornet was very special
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.
It’s great to have largely unrestricted access throughout the museum and exhibits.
We had a great visit and the kids really loved getting in the planes!
I liked the Horsa Glider and ability to go into cockpits
A truly great collection and friendly, enthusiastic volunteers.
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.
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.
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!
