I really enjoyed the air museum, it was full of history and there was plenty for all ages. Some interactive and indoor experiences as well as the planes outside. We loved it!

Went here on the BBC Radio Nottingham Big Day Out for free, the site is well laid out and bigger than you think if you see it from passing. Outdoor and plenty of indoor exhibits, like many museums it relies on volunteers. The outdoor exhibits...More

One of the most detailed and informative museums I have ever visited. There were so many old planes and RAF training equipment. The Vulcan is the star of the show and it's worth hanging around to get inside the plane. I had a fascinating chat...More

A great collect of aircraft and artefacts spanning from from the early years of aviation through to the cold war. They also have a good cafe for a slice of cake and a cup of tea.

I had high hopes for this trip on a dreary weather day but wished I hadn't bothered. Unless you are a plane enthuiast I wouldn't entertain it. Very little interaction for young children. Very limited viewing opportunities up close. In fact nothing much to keep...More

I took my 9 years old grandson for a day at Newark Air Museum during the Easter School Holidays. The displays of vintage aircraft were much more extensive than I expected, some being shown within two large hangers and other, larger ones on the grass...More

Lots to see, aircraft types from far & wide, as well as those totally British designs! Obviously, the "Vulcan" is a top attraction - saw it land there, many years ago, now!

Hi, What would be the best day to visit the museum, if my friend and self wished to see inside the Vulcan. We went to see the Vulcan at Robin Hood airport "An audience with Barry" which we found excellent, but we could not see inside as it still had one more display (Final) to complete. Looking on "Trip Advisor" and your only charging 50p to look inside the Vulcan, bargain! I think if you said "voluntary payment, but 50p minimum, you could make more money? Many thanks Paul Frost
