Suitable for all ages
Started by plane enthusiasts and located near the airport, this is a great rainy day option with most displays located in one open hangar (a separate hangar has planes that are currently being restored and some planes are outside).
Avgas cafe is attached to the main hangar and there’s an outdoor playground if the weather isn’t an issue. You might be lucky enough to watch a classic plane getting ready to take off.
With interactive displays in the museum and even the chance to take part in a scenic flight in a Classic Biplane, there’s lots to see and do for the whole family, no matter what the weather is like.
