    Very interesting and well done. There is an entry video and self-guided tour in English. Some of the machines are truly impressive.

    Even if you aren't specially interested in helicopters this is a very good afternoon out. It's an excellent presentation, with a guided tour available, which I strongly recommend. There is a short film to start, then the small exhibits, then a hangar full of some most impressive aircraft. You don't need to wait until it rains, go anyway as you won't regret it. Entirely run by volunteers, who are passionate about what they are doing.

    I've learned so many things of helicopters functioning. The guide was perfect. Not seen the 3 hours spent there.

    An interesting place to visit. Our guide was informative and at times too technical for me. My husband and I couldn't stand listening to him for two and half hours so we went alone exploring the...
