The two exhibits are expertly crafted to give an immersive but not overwhelming experience. I would highly recommend it.

Lovely exhibits, imaginatively presented. Knowledgeable staff and a fantastic cafe. The Army Air Corps Museum at Middle Wallop could learn a lot from this wonderful place.

This WW1 and WW2 aviation museum is slightly off the beaten track in the beautiful wine country that surrounds Blenheim. The very knowledgeable guide was on hand to answer questions although the well documented exhibits speak for themselves. A must for any aviation buff.
