A small museum but full of interesting stories and artefacts. Was expecting some outside exhibits bit there weren't any. Doesn't take long to go around. Felt at £8 per adult it was a little expensive for the size, but a nice collection none the less

Hi. No, there is no cafe or food but they have a hot drinks machine. We took a small picnic with us. There is a bench outside the hanger where you can munch.

It doesn't specifically mention dogs, but the people there are very amenable and I'm sure that would be OK. I would call them before to confirm Hope this helps
