  • Fantastic museum, I will most certainly be returning here. Very interesting for aviation fans like myself, so many things to see and learn. Observation deck is fantastic, great for viewing heavy departures/arrivals. Aircraft outside the museum are very interesting too, some aircraft still had moving yokes within the cockpit. Great experience. Awesome selection of model aircraft too, available to purchase.
  • Very enjoyable place to visit with young kids. Outside there are selection of small aircraft you can enter, sit in cockpit etc. Great views of aircraft landing and taking off too.
