A band of volunteers run this small but interesting museum. A range of aircraft to be seen, a number in RAE raspberry ripple colours. Interesting artefacts in side the small building and of course the Cody Replica can be seen.More

A treasure trove of knowledge. Historical and modern technologies are all represented in a small but perfectly formed celebration of British ingenuity. The staff are all brilliant. Knowledgeable and accessible. It's free, but dig deep, it's worth it.More

Hello there, Dogs are very welcome in most parts of the Museum, as long as they are kept under close control. The main exception is the upstairs Coffee Lounge. Thank you.
