What an interesting place to visit. Grounds kept in excellent condition. Staff friendly and informative - knew their stuff. Would go again for another visit. An extra couple of road signs would have been helpful to find it.

Great museum with plenty to see, volunteers are friendly and helpful. Lots to see for all ages, nice new cafe also to visit. Highly recommend for a day out. Can enter the Vulcan bomber for a small fee of I think £2-00.

The charge £1, I think and you'll have a 30 minute talk from a Vulcan pilot who was very informative and charismatic. Please visit, it a great museum, extremely well run
