Fun morning in the cockpit.

What a great aviation museum. Not too big or small. Great for adults and kids alike.

Good family fun

We had a great family day out. The man at reception was very helpful and the exhibits were reasonably interactive which kept hubby and the kids entertained. The little kids had great fun riding around in the little pedal planes and on the playground too. My only criticism was that our 6 year old had very few interactive activities as they were all for five and under (except for the playground). We will definitely be back again.
