Montrose Air Station Heritage Centre Survey
A key element of the strategy is developing a clear understanding of our wonderful visitors, customers and followers. In particular we want to look at how you interact with the museum and how you find out about our activities. To help in the research, our partners from Napier University have prepared a questionnaire which we will issue over the next few days. This will be shared across our website, social media and to our museum members.
We would be very grateful if you could take a few moments to complete the questionnaire. Rest assured, the survey is completely anonymous, and no personal information or email addresses are collected. The information you give will help us improve our marketing and promotional strategy in the coming months as we strive to re-open our doors and welcome back visitors in 2021.
We thank you for your time and participation and eagerly await the results to help our efforts in making Montrose Air Station Heritage Centre a ‘must visit’ museum.

"The work here is hugely important in so many ways. It’s important to Scotland, it’s important to our sense of British history and it is certainly extremely important to the Royal Air Force today, so I know all my Air Force colleagues will join me in saying how indebted we are with that endeavour."Air Marshal Sir David Walker KCVO, OBE, DL.
