This little gem is a wonderful day out for all the family. The kids loved it especially being able to get into the cockpits and play with all the switches. The cockpit of the Vulcan bomber was especially worth a visit.

Lovely little museum, free entry and free parking. Staff are very knowledgeable and keen. Ensure you book onto the tours, they are only 10 min presentations. Picnic tables outside. No dogs allowed inside.

A collection of most of the aviation history of Gloucester (which is more than you think) and a lot of historical interest from elsewhere. Cockpits you can climb in, one of a kind aircraft, of parts thereof - something interesting around every corner. And the...More
