A fascinating museum with artefacts going back 100 years to the start of aviation in the UK. Interactive displays and working flight simulators.

Shame the space was very limited but take into account the staff are all volunteers and very little funding, its a nice little place for a trip out.

We arranged a special trip for a group of us and they have us a presentation and conducted tour and made it seriously interesting. Knowing that we were slightly technical they pitched it at exactly the right level
