First off - it is amazing that it is free! Staffed by a loyal and enthusiastic team of volunteers. Fair shout to them (we did, of course, make a donation).

We found the whole museum really interesting with some real history with the planes and jet engines. Our lad was able to sit in a cockpit and we enjoyed going into the Trident plane/cockpit that they had there. Planes from a different era but so impressive.

Not the biggest museum but would highly recommend.

Spent a couple of hours here today. Lots of interesting information about Gloucestershire’s role in the aircraft industry.
A lovely small exhibition (on loan) of hand stitched tapestries celebrating local RAF bases was an added bonus.
Friendly, helpful staff and volunteers and a nice coffee in the small cafe

This museum is absolutely fantastic. Not only a vital part of Gloucestershire heritage, but a museum of national aviation importance. Totally ran by volunteers, who are exceptionally knowledgeable and welcoming. Impressive display of restored aircraft. Would like to see the work carried out here supported by the RAF.
You can also sit in the picnic area watching the planes and helicopters coming and going at the airport next door.

A proud representation of the local history and contribution to aviation history.

Great day out, good weather, interesting reading about Mr Whittle & the development of the Jet engine, sunny weather which made the Spitfire Flyover quite spectacular although a bit short - two fly over’s about a 60 seconds in total, but over all a great spot, just to watch the planes landing and taking off from the run way plenty of Tables with a view – take a picnic.
Whilst walking around the Museum I saw the model kits that are glued together and painted not unlike the Airfix models I used to make as kid, so as we had seen the spitfires I bought my boy a kit which as it turns out is not quite a kit.
I don’t mind paying slightly over the odds for the Revell super marine spitfire (03953) as its for a good cause it’s just when my boy opened the box – no glue – no paint with Airfix it’s an inclusive all in one kit - The Model, the Glue and the Paint. With Revel this is extra so he wasn’t able to build the model.
I checked on line, using Revell - separate Model, Glue and paint - to Build the Spitfire breaks down like this - Model £7.00, Glue £4.50 and a pack of the six miniatures paints requires £9 - so on or about £20 not counting the paint brush.
Whereas the Airfix kit, is actually is a kit, glue, paint and all, they even supply a Paint Brush total cost on or about £10.
Whilst I was pricing this up on line remembering the Jet age museum is beating the drum for Britain - the Dunkirk sprit kind of thing – which is good but as if to add insult to injury – Revell is now apparently a Germanic Company. So come on guys I’m sure if you had a chat to the bods at Airfix may be invite them down for a Tour and explained that it’s all for a good cause etc they would let you sell their model KITS at cost price.
Apart from the Model Aircraft scandal (joke) this was a good day out and we will be returning, Thanks. Matt & Sarah.

Thanks you for your kind words. Like other museums we've done our best to be open when permitted by the government this last year. It's a huge boost for our volunteers to see your comments.

Actually I went in April of last year (2019) but forgot to review this. We decided to go when armed forces day was on and loved the spitfire flying overhead but that was just the beginning. Housed here is the history of the Gloster aviation company. Showing off the Whittle, Javelin and Meteor. The highlight for me though was sitting in the captain's chair of the vulcan nose section. The only thing that would have topped it off is if it had been a full sized flying one I could have actually flown lol. Free entry and the gift section is sufficient. Jolly good!!

Hi, Glad you enjoyed your visit last year and thanks for your kind words. Along with so many other Museums, coronavirus has had an impact on what we can do. At present our cockpits are not open to the public and the Museum is operating reduced opening hours on weekend afternoons only. We are COVID 19 Secure and have been awarded the Visit Britain 'Good To Go' marque. Although our cockpits are closed, we are showing our Vulcan tour video narrated by two of our volunteers, both retired Vulcan captains, and our video about the civil Blind Landing System developed in Cheltenham by Smiths Industries and first used commercially in the Trident airliner. Please do come and see us again when you can.
