Newark Air Museum, Nottinghamshire

Visit 19th May 2016

A lovely day for walking round the outside exhibits and plenty to see inside. Two hangars and a few other buildings including a cafe and shop. Charge for entry. Free car park. Nicely presented museum about 40 years old but improving all the time.
