    Lots of what you would want to see in an air museum and so much more, bonus free WiFi across majority of it too!

    This was a fascinating days out. So MUCH to see, walk round Concorde too!! Eight hangars in all, and well worth the effort to see all

    Good day out with the family. Long walk to see the tanks but worth it. Restaurant was shut for refurb - which was a bit of a disappointment.

    Each exhibition hall takes up 20 to 40 mins. Allow a day to visit the whole museum

    Museum is of its kind in Europe, houses the largest collection of U.S. vintage airplanes outside of the U.S., including Boeing airplanes such as the Stearman, F-15 and the museum's centerpiece, a B-52

    Expensive, but with it for a day out. All children under 16 are free which is good for families!

    Lots of walking for young children-saw a family with scooters today. Brilliant idea! Also food is poor so bring a picnic-there's an M&S at a nearby garage (Sawston) with a good sandwich etc selection.

    Where there is a show, arrive before 9:30 to avoid the queues. Also go to the car before the show is officially over, to avoid loosing another 1-2 hours due to the traffic.

    Great new exhibits to see even when no air show on (you may be lucky to catch some though). Food and drink a bit expensive though.

    One of the best military museums I've been in UK so far. The airshow is something special, to see those warbirds flying and hearing them in the smell of gasoline, that's entirely another story!

    Bring your own food and use the eating space in Hangar 1. Food at the restaurant is ridiculously expensive!

    Home to the only member of the Blackbird family outside the United States. SR-71A, serial number 61-7962, set a flight altitude record of 85,069 feet in July 1976.

    The best place to see old warbirds fly...airshows here are not to be missed especially if you like B-17 Flying Fortresses, Spitfires, Hurricanes and Lancasters

    Personally I think this is the best military museum I've visited in Britain; there is so much to do & see here, with friendly & helpful staff, and excellent facilities. Not to be missed!

    If you visit in a week prior to airshows you can watch the practice flights. Sometimes better than the show! But the shows are worth a visit also. One of the best collections in the World.
