Fleet Air Arm Museum

 

The Fleet Air Arm Museum is home to Europe’s largest naval aircraft collection. With over 100 aircraft, 2 million records, artefacts, and objects you are sure to find something that will capture your imagination.

The Museum is also home to Concorde 002, the first British prototype Concorde which visitors can climb aboard. As well as this, visitors can watch live flying of the Royal Naval Air Station’s Merlin and Wildcat helicopters from the safety of our two viewing areas.

Visitors will be able to enjoy the updated Aircraft Carrier Experience, where you will be taken on an immersive journey of discovery through the evolution of Aircraft Carriers from the dawn of naval air warfare, through the heyday of jet aviation right up to the workings of the modern-day Queen Elizabeth Class Carriers. As well as the Carrier Experience, there is the refurbished Falklands exhibition which commemorates the 40th anniversary of the conflict. This features ‘Humphrey’ the famous Mk3 Wessex helicopter.

New for 2023; to celebrate the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III, the Fleet Air Arm Museum is exhibiting a new display entitled ‘the Flight of the Red Dragon’. This includes items connected to his Majesty’s time serving in the Fleet Air Arm. Available to view until Oct 2023.

Make sure to visit Warnefords to relax and refuel, our refurbished café located inside the museum which serves a variety of hot and cold snacks as well as drinks. Little ones can also enjoy the new Search and Rescue inspired soft play area inside the Museum and our outdoor Queen Elizabeth Class Carrier adventure play area.
