A small but gem of a place with knowledgeable staff who it is worth taking the time to ask questions. The real highlight was the talk in the Vulcan cockpit. Made our visit. The tea room was nice too!

Very interesting museum run by volunteers. Lots of displays with plenty of information about the exhibits. We were surprised with the amount of planes outside as it doesn't look that big. Nice little cafe. Well worth the entrance money.

Plenty to see and interesting even to someone not particularly interested in planes! It has been very well thought out and is full of fascinating exhibits and information. Sitting in the cockpit of the Vulcan was definitely the highlight.
