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.

A truly great collection and friendly, enthusiastic volunteers.
My son enjoyed himself particularly sitting in the planes and the guide in Hangar E was very informative and helpful.
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.

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
We had a great visit and the kids really loved getting in the planes!

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.

I liked the Horsa Glider and ability to go into cockpits
It’s great to have largely unrestricted access throughout the museum and exhibits.
