Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

The BMW Motorrad Club visited the Museum last week by prior arrangement. The DeHavilland Museum were happy to accommodate the inevitable fluctuation in numbers of Club members expected to visit the Museum and their preferences. Our guide Trevor was outstanding. He kept everyone spellbound with his fluid delivery and his knowledge of DeHavilland's history and the exhibits displayed at the Museum. The range of drinks and snacks available was also greatly appreciated by everyone, especially after a rather wet ride to London Colney. A thoroughly enjoyable trip!

A lovely museum, with a very reasonable entry fee. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. They have some beautifully restored pieces and they look like they are constantly updating the information to give the museum a modern feel.

One of the staff told me that the visitor numbers fell through the pandemic and never returned to where they used to be.

This place is definitely worth a visit, there are three gorgeous examples of the "Wooden Wonder" Mosquito on display.

Such a great collection with restorations currently in progress. The volunteers seem so devoted to passing on the amazing stories of this historic site where some of world war 2s biggest secrets came together to contribute to victory in a big way.
Surprising to see how much this now defunct company played such an important role in the post war jet airline industry which most of us use and enjoy regularly.
Shame the museum is so hidden away due to the fact it is based where the top secret mosquito and airco horsa glider were designed during world war 2, but well worth hunting down.

A very nice experience. A place full with history and inventions. Very well prepared and lots of explanations on display, plus lots of very helpful information given by staff and volunteers. Is good for people with aircraft knowledge but also for the ones who really want to know about aircraft

Excellent experience; the staff and volunteers could not be more helpful, knowledgeable or friendly. They were very welcoming and provided a very in depth technical and historical backstory of the collection. Thoroughly recommend a visit and Jerry (the cat ) was a lovely bonus.

The museum is great! I have lived in St Albans for years, with children and wished we had gone sooner. My younger ones (7 & 10) loved looking at all of the aircraft, parts, engines as well as the wooden games and Easter Trail. We will be back again when the sun is shining to enjoy the little play area too.

Lovely little gem of a museum. Great inside exhibits particularly around the Mosquito and the de Havilland story. Walk inside a Comet and enter a few planes outside too. The 60s decor inside the Dove was a particular highlight. And what a lovely few old estate buildings to drive past on the way in.

Volunteers fantastic, knowledgeable, friendly. Cafe toasted sandwiches also highly recommended.

Sort of a shame that the museum isn’t better signposted and better known. But also part of the loveliness was that it wasn’t too busy and there was lots of space just to take things in.

Go & visit. We need to keep this kind of place alive.

Three Mosquitoes in one place and many more aircraft. Very knowledgeable staff about the history and mechanics of the aircraft. Cosy shop and cafe.

With the daily car in use I took a day trip via train/bus to this museum. My primary goal was to see and learn more about the Mosquito aeroplane. So everyone has heard of the Spitfire and Hurricane but less know about this marvellous wooden wonder which was faster and more adaptable. I was not disappointed. Lots of info and helpful guides. Cafe was OK, microwaved baps but tea was good.
From St. Albans City station there is a a half-hourly number 84 bus (the museums’s website says from High Street, no, outside railway station) the bus driver knew where to stop for me. 5-10 min walk down the drive, past old interesting buildings and Salisbury Hall itself.
I probably could have spent longer there but was mindful of travel,time back home.

Visited this museum on Saturday 23rd after many years. What a change as a further hanger has been built with lottery and other funding that has allowed this museum to tell the De Havilland story. Most people will be familiar with the Mosquito fighter that was the star of the film 633 Squadron and was built of 80% wood and 20% metal. You can see this star there and see the guns and engine that went into it. However, did you know that the worlds first commercial airliner the 'Comet' was built by this company. There is the only surviving square window example of this plane in the world here. Britain had a 3/4 year technical lead over Boeing with respect to air passenger jet travel but this also meant that hard lessons were learnt about stresses on the frame (hence round windows now) resulting in two fatal crashes that allowed Boeing to catch up and then dominate. You can go into the plane and see what early air travel was like. You will notice how few seats, no overhead luggage and spacious toilets compared to modern equivalents. The company also manufactured modern fighter jets and even the engines to go with them. There is so much to see and read but what I enjoyed so much was being able to speak to the very knowledgeable and enthusiastic volunteers who were only to glad to engage with visitors. I could have spent hours there as reading about about something as opposed to actually seeing and touching is never the same. As an example, British aircraft were originally armed with machine guns only rather than cannons that were adopted later. When you see the comparative sizes of the ammunition you understand why that change was necessary. I did not use the restaurant. If you want to understand and appreciate the genius of De Havilland, see and touch aircraft history and have people passionate about explaining this to you then this is the place to go. Look up the website for prices but for a family (assume two adults and two children up to 16 is a reasonable £35 with gift aid and £31.50 without.
