This is an excellent collection with very keen volunteer curators on hand to answer all your questions. I was in company with 8 & 9 year olds who throughly enjoyed the visit mainly because of the enthusiasm conveyed by the people there.

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 .
