A must visit if you in the Headcorn area - the exhibits really make you stop and think about the sacrifices made during the war. A good visit for local children studying ww2. A fitting tribute to the brave pilots .

Popped in after lunch at Wings Bar to show parents the museum. I've been few times before but they hadn't. They really enjoyed reading up on the local area finds and humming along to Glen Miller playing in the background! Bought a few books in...More

This is a small but packed museum put together by a dedicated team. It suits all ages and is very informative in relation to the WW11 period.
