The Fleet Air Arm Museum offers a day out guaranteed to thrill the whole family. You’ll be up close and personal among Europe’s largest collection of Naval aircraft, plus you can step on board the first British Concorde and see the cockpit first hand.
The museum takes you to the heart of the action within the award winning Aircraft Carrier Experience. You’ll ‘fly’ by helicopter to the replica flight deck of the HMS Ark Royal. On board you’ll see ten aircraft and two enormous projection screens showing a Phantom Interceptor Fighter and Buccaneer Low Level Strike Bomber take off and land around you. The sonic and visual assault on the senses is breathtaking.
You’ll experience the drama of a working flight deck and feel the wind in your hair as you witness an air sea rescue when a Buccaneer is lost over the side of the Ark Royal into the sea. You will even see a nuclear bomb.
Outside is a children’s ‘Mini Marines’ adventure playground, a licensed restaurant, shop, ample free parking and excellent disabled access.
More than a museum, The Fleet Air Arm Museum is an exciting experience revealing the history of Naval aviation. Situated alongside Europe’s busiest military air station, you may even see military aircraft going through their training procedures.
The Museum is an excellent venue for a group visit; with displays and facilities to engage all age groups and interests. A dedicated group booking service helps organisers plan an excellent day out for their guests. Pre-booked groups will enjoy the benefit of a meet and greet on arrival (staff allowing) and may book guided tours, special interest talks and discounted group meal options. There is ample parking for coaches and cars, catering facilities, guided tours and the option for special interest talks. To arrange your group visit, plan your programme and pre-book group rates please ring on +44 (0)1935 842633 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
