The Yorkshire Military Air Museum

What a wonderfully educational and fascinating place the Yorkshire Military Air Museum really is. Little M like myself was intrigued and engaged by the huge aeroplanes and various displays.

At the 1-2 age bracket we are currently enjoying, the full benefits of the museum are not going to be realised for the price, however, Little M was definitely mesmerised by the giant flying machines and the military memorabilia. I can’t wait until he has a history project at School where we can plan a visit and bring history to life!

The vehicle hardware is impressive and easy to discuss with a toddler and also an adult, making this one of the venues i can see full family generations all venturing out to and each enjoying a different experience of the same scenario.

The highlight was the two gentlemen in a hut communicating with similar enthusiasts in Europe via morse code. They took the time to answer my questions and show Little M how things work.

On site, there was also a very reasonably priced cafe with plenty of space and a small gift shop with a range of toys and items for sale.

We also took a short walk to the memorial garden for a quiet moment which reminded me of the importance of remembering the history of the World Wars and educating him on the contribution of the Military.

Summary

The vehicle hardware is impressive and easy to discuss with a toddler and also an adult, making this one of the venues i can see full family generations all venturing out to and each enjoying a different experience of the same scenario.

Whilst there aren’t many child focussed interactive activities, it is very clear about what you can expect. There is plenty of space for a family to explore with a mix of high impact visuals.

This will be even more impressive when Little M is a little older and can really connect the importance of the Military and the aeroplanes in our history and future.
