Very quiet on the day we were there so we had a private tour. We visited 9 years ago, what an incredible service these wonderful people provide. Worth the entrance fee and more to help with their wonderful work.

Tours every day at 10.15 and 2 pm. If an aircraft is in, they will let you look at it. Interesting talk and DVD, outlining the history, and background. Allow maybe an hour to listen and look.
