“An exciting, educational experience for all the family”

Family-friendly museum

A wonderful day out and for free. Even if they were charging it would be worth a visit to see this collection there are some wonderful machines here. There is something for everyone if your into aviation now matter what age you are.

Virtual Reality Zone & 4D Theatre

Interesting morning out. Kept our 2 year old grand daughter interested with the large selection of planes- many indoors so perfect for a winter day. Cafe also serves really tasty food and the play area is great for toddlers.

Nicola N, Trip Advisor
On-site Airfield Café with nutritional meals

Lots to see and was an enjoyable long day out. Huge amount of planes, vehicles, uniforms to look at.

The Red Arrows 4D Theatre

Join the world famous aerobatic display team the Red Arrows in our 4D Theatre. Visitors will experience the thrill of flying in formation with Red 1 and see the precise skill involved in some of their famous moves.


Virtual reality zone

Keeping the family entertained

Our Spitfire 360° virtual reality experience puts the visitor 10,000 feet in the air in one of the most iconic cockpits in history.

Once visitors put on the VR goggles they are in the cockpit and have a fully interactive 360° panoramic view around them. The 6-minute flight includes engine start, taxi, take off and a circuit of the airfield with low passes, swoops, banks and a loop-de-loop. The experience ends with a landing and taxi into the hangar.
