Went to this museum for the 40s event. Really great few hours. Interesting speakers. Lindy hoppers where great. You can revisit anytime over the 12 months

Excellent flying visit when the weather outside was discouraging. Particularly liked the mezzanine snack-bar, from which you can look to plan your visit. The V2 rocket (an original) and the medal room also repaid close attention. 12 month ticket, so we'll be back!

There is a lot of memorabilia from both world wars including a map of where doodlebug bombs hit during the second one. Outside you will find loads of machinery, my favourite being the bridge building tank. Very worthwhile day out in a lovely location.
