    Really liked the museum although very small. A very nice old gentleman originally from Ontario, a volunteer, explained interesting things. Just marvelous people. Gift Shops has nice things with reasonable prices. You could spend at least 1 hour and half of fun and learning here, even adults.

    Had a visit on a very rainy day and enjoyed the museum very much. There were quite a few items on display and they were arranged well. A very eclectic mixture of aircraft and artifacts. Went specifically looking for the Lancaster and would like to have spent some time looking at the inside but it is closed and outside viewing is all I got. Staff was knowledgeable and helpful. I would recommend to anyone wanting to see some unique aircraft and artifacts.

    Came to visit with 3 kids, looked at all the exhibits, which were great. Must have been an off day for staff, seemed like everyone was too busy in some big meeting or playing with RC planes. The guy in the store was just plane (lol) rude. Luckily, the planes themselves (especially the Lancaster) are cool enough themselves to make it a goid trip.
    Side note: maybe not put kids toys next to the front doors, if you dont want anything touched.

    Really enjoyed this visit here, great displays you can explore on your own. 8 and 11 year olds really enjoyed learning about these great old planes. Lots of questions generated and genuine interest at seeing such great examples of engineering and learning about the pilots that flew these crazy aircraft in the early days. Lots of fun for the whole family and the price was amazing, only $25 for a family of four!
