Very friendly and informative staff for a large foreign group. They even found a German speaker in their volunteers to guide the fliers in the group on how to use the simulator. A very nice experience indeed, thanks to all at the museum.
Interesting local museum with Roman dress-up box for children. Would have liked to learn more about Tony Vandervell and his Company, but only a couple of small exhibits. The Spitfire exhibit would be worth a look but MUST be booked in advance!
We moored our narrowboat and spent a day in Maidenhead. The Heritage Center is well worth a stop. Downstairs you are greeted by the friendly volunteers who staff the place and there is good info about the history of the town. But it's the upstairs that you must not miss! The "Grandma Flew Spitfires And You Can, Too!" exhibit and... 更多
I really visited this venue for the Spitfire simulator. I enjoy aircraft simulators and have tried several. This is a simple simulator but none the less very realistic and enjoyable. I had the half hour experience for the amazingly low price of £15.00. It is worth so much more. It is remarkably well put together and you really get the... 更多
Having moved away from Maidenhead my wife recently saw an advert for The Skindles Hotel Exhibition being held in the heritage centre. It was so worth the visit and the presentation brought back so many memories for us both. The Chairman, Richard, made us feel so very welcome and his knowledge was fantastic and to all his colleagues a very... 更多

They form a walk-in history of this extraordinary unit if male and many female pilots who ferried aircraft, unarmed and without radio,... 更多
Couldn't recommend this more. It's a great little museum anyway with lots of interesting stuff BUT the Grandma Flew Spitfires experience is fabulous - no matter if you're v old or very young! You get a one-to-one "tuition" session as you fly the simulator and you really do feel you're flying. Plus its affordable - have a go. Take your... 更多
What a fascinating museum dedicated to those men and women whose job it was to fly aircraft from the factories to the boys in blue where ever that was during the war! The aircraft were without any form of communication nor were they armed! so much memorabilia you need time to take it all in, and full marks to the... 更多
This is a great asset to Maidenhead , putting on various visual displays as well as selecting different topics of local interest to give talks on during the week
i went there as i was working in the UK / Maidenhead and passed it on the way to work. for me apart from the general history the information on the bridge was really interesting.
