Thank you. We're glad you enjoyed your visit. The cafeteria will not be relocated for some time, I'm afraid.

Absolutely fascinating. Loads to see (almost brain overload). My Wife had a wonderful experience on the simulator, it's a 'must do' toy for grown-ups. Will go again when it's not raining. So much hard work, experience and knowledge have made this a superb place to...More

How very kind of you to pen this complimentary report on the Beavers' visit. We much appreciate your remarks which, given one important element of our mission - to educate the young - suggest that we may be succeeding. I hope we'll see you again.

Staffed by volunteers. An interesting, and instructive, museum. Suitable for all ages. Allow about 2 hours. The only downside was the café where drinks are served from one of those press-button machines. My other half ordered an Americano with milk which was undrinkable as it...More

The comment about being suitable for all ages is appreciated. The criticism of the Tea Room is somewhat perverse. Coffee is provided from a very expensive 'bean-to-cup' machine whilst tea is freshly brewed. The soup does not, repeat not, come from supermarket cartons. In order...More

Tangmere’s association with the Battle of Britain and the Special Operations Executive were guaranteed to pique my interest when in the area. However, with this museum the devil is in the detail: the actual planes themselves are a big disappointment: the prototype Spitfire, Lysander and...More

It is difficult to know where to start in responding to this review but I will try. It should have come as no surprise that the Spitfire prototype, Lysander and Hurricane are replicas since this is cited on the Museum's website (in passing, the real...More
