An amazing day, so much to do in the Museum. A great experience and very interesting to learn all about the Fleet Air Arm.

A very interesting and thought provoking visit. Loved the interactive diaplays and cant wait to return.
A thoroughly absorbing and enjoyable visit, we have learned a lot about the RNAS
Family visit. This is our 9th time here. My child loves coming and it’s great value for money and very interesting! Thank you very much.
"Fantastic place to visit"
As a jet aircraft enthusiast this was a must do whilst in Somerset. It completely surpassed my expectations, and hubby was pleasantly surprised too!
From the moment we entered I was in thrall of the various aircraft, ranging from Sea King helicopters to Sea Harriers (favourite of mine) to Concorde. The gem in the museum is the Air Craft Carrier experience...you enter a helicopter which simulates a flight to a carrier at sea and 'lands' you on the flight deck. From there you experience aircraft landing and taking off, and a guided tour of the Island on board HMS Ark Royal.
I cannot recommend this museum highly enough....you won't regret making time to visit!!
I wasn't expecting to go here, but we had a few hours to kill while in the area. I'm really glad we went. I'm not really into "planes n stuff" but I really enjoyed getting up close to the planes, seeing interesting pictures and had fun with some of the interactive games. Getting to go inside Concorde was good fun too. This is a must for plane geeks. Kids will love it too. The staff were friendly and smiley. Nice little shop too. I've got an annual pass, so if it was closer, I'd definitely go back (I live 300 miles away, up north.).
Visited with my husband and elderly parents and thoroughly enjoyed the day. We only went along to "keep the husband happy" but ended up enjoying it almost as much as him! The displays are very interesting and immaculate with friendly, helpful staff on hand to help when you need it. The museum was much larger than we expected but was well suited for the disabled (both my parents are registered). If you gift aid your entrance fee, this enables you to return at a later date. Well done to everyone involved with this special museum.
"Best Museum Experience"
Didn't expect to enjoy this visit - only going along to please hubby but how wrong was I! The interactive aircraft carrier experience was great and this was by far the best museum I've been to. Adults and children alike will really love it although young children may not want to join in all the experiences but these are clearly indicated. Cannot recommend it enough - if you are in the area it's a must.
