Really worth a visit

I wouldn’t have thought I would have stayed so long or enjoyed myself so much. Interesting , informative. Historical and a great restaurant to boot.

Good experience

I was disappointed to find that the outdoor section was closed due to rain, but overall a good experience.

I was overcharged

The experience was great, my little grandson loved riding the little planes and my husband just enjoyed it all. Nice cafe too, good food and great coffee. Unfortunately due to heavy rain we didn't enjoy the outside but found the stuff inside interesting and could take our time wondering around. However, I couldn't get any of the deal prices as we wanted to go for my husbands brunch on his birthday so I paid $37.50 for two adults and a child, had I purchased on the door I could have got a family pass for $30. Worth checking if you don't get the half price offer.
