Flying the SPITFIRE SIMULATOR at Maidenhead Heritage Centre has been described as "the best fun ever". It is part of a superb permanent exhibition called "Grandma Flew Spitfires!" which tells a forgotten World War II story of courage, skill and sacrifice - the story of Air Transport Auxiliary and its civilian pilots who ferried over 300,000 warplanes between factories and RAF airfields.
These pilots from the UK, the USA, Australia, Canada, Poland and even Chile were all doing their bit for the war effort, and without them victory might never have been achieved. Come and discover their amazing story.
Also in the museum are displays and exhibitions about other aspects of local history: Hammer Horror films, Vanwall racing cars, the great engineer Brunel and the heyday of riverside Maidenhead in Victorian and Edwardian times.
