This is a very well presented museum dedicated to the 2 famous aircraft from the Battle of Britain and the men who flew them. Also, a lot of interesting information about the impact of the war on the local area.
Situated right next to the runway at RAF Manston, a front line fighter base in the Battle of Britain is this excellent museum housing an original Hurricane and Spitfire, and countless other exhibits, with a shop and café too. We were delighted to meet Ron who flew in the war and was an absolute star! It is free entry, but... 更多
Wonderful museum. However the staff were unkind and lazy. We arrived half an hour before closing time. The first thing they said was they were about to close and the shop was already closed 30 minutes before due time!!!!

This is a free entry museum which is preserving our heritage. There is a wealth of information and artefacts. The staff are friendly and very approachable and its run totally on donations so get some cash out when you visit , the kids will love it.
Wonderful Museum with lunch added. Took my 92 dad to visit one of his old airfields. Lots of interesting items to look at and added bonus of good basic cafe next door. Also another Museum across the car park.
interesting exhibits and stories told well. Looked like nice food in cafe but we just had coffee. Lots of volunteers about to answer any questions

The aircraft, which took part in the Battle of Britain, is completely intact and fully restored. In fact, the dedicated enthusiasts did... 更多
Superb mini museum which has 2 planes to study and heaps of WW2 paraphernalia which will keep you busy for a couple of hours. When your finished, you can pop next door into the traditional British café for some lunch or just a drink and snack.
This museum is rather small, yet full of interesting information. It's definitely a must for war birds enthusiast. It is next to "The RAF Manston History Museum", so you can have two attractions in one trip.
We had friends visiting from Yorkshire and, because the weather was inclement, we decided to visit the museum. It is free to enter and relies on donations. It isn't very big but it manages to cram quite a lot in it. We found it very interesting and informative. A lovely way to while away an hour or so. Don't forget... 更多
