I was interested in seeing this as my late Father was in the FAA. It didn't disappoint. Informative, interesting, great people happy to talk to you, amazing planes and, best of all, a section called Carrier, about aircraft carriers. It was fabulous.

Excellent museum - great for kids as there is a lot of interactive stuff. Plenty of parking and not too expensive when booked through a discount site such as picniq. Highly recommended - worth a day trip to the middle of nowhere in Wiltshire.
