Its a working aerodrome, but full of WW2 RAF history & the control tower is packed full of memorabilia (upstairs). Very worthwhile for any RAF/WW2 enthusiast.

Visited the museum as I had found a connection in Lincoln cathedral. Nice museum in the original control tower. Nice little cafe for a cuppa. Out of the way but peaceful, apart from the odd light aircraft buzzing around.

On a lovely summer day visit this little museum in the control tower. The museum has no big exhibits but conveys the personal aspect of life as a bomber pilot. There are letters and exhibits that tell of the sacrifice made by many in bomber...More

Being in the control tower, overlooking the runway, you can almost hear the bombers taking off. Everything is real and kept just as it was during the war
