Spent an hour or so there, lots of information & bits of aircraft to see. Area for little kids to do colouring. Didn't notice a cafe.

Lovely museum with lots to see. Only takes a couple of hours. Reasonable prices. Helpful guides in many languages. Helpful staff. Not easy to find though without satnav, feels like you're going through a council estate to get there. Ample parking. Would recommend.

Lots to see in the museum, models, engines, bits of aircraft, posters etc., very handy to have an English language guidebook to help. There are a handful of actual aircraft in a separate hanger to the museum

This is a most interesting museum that covers the history of hydraviation. As with many museums (I find), there is almost too much to see, and it is best to be selective to avoid ennui setting in after you're only half way through.
