A great museum. The highlight was walking in a Sunderland and sitting in the cockpit. Our guide Barry Wealthy was very informative and provided a detailed and fascinating insight into the museum and flying boats. Looking forward to returning.

My husband is spitfire mad and he thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the museum. We were allowed to sit in cockpits and we loved walking around the sea plane. Overall it was a lovely couple of hours spent there.
