Welcome

Welcome to the oldest aviation museum in the UK dedicated to the preservation and display of de Havilland Aircraft. The de Havilland Aircraft Company played an important role in the history of aircraft development in 20th century Britain.You can get close up to and into many of our air frames including the unique Comet 1a an early example of the worlds first jet airliner and we are the only aviation museum in the world to display three DH Mosquitos including the Prototype W4050 the only WW2 prototype that is on display where it was designed and built.

The Museum is now open following the completion of our mew hangar and other major improvements


WE’RE OPEN!

Thanks to money raised by National Lottery players and the National Heritage Lottery Fund who awarded a grant of nearly £2 million plus the donations from our many supporters, the “de Havilland Aircraft Museum in the 21st Century Project” has reached this significant milestone. Our new hangar ,provides shelter for most of our collection and the construction of a large mezzanine floor is now open .

We continue to seek funds to complete the whole project so please consider making a donation-you can make a donation by clicking here.

This is a significant investment in Hertfordshire’s aviation heritage and Community facilities.

The new hangar is fully accessible to our visitors of all ages.

The building of the new hangar provides an undercover experience for visitors to see a range of historic aircraft designed by the de Havilland Aircraft Company. The New Hangar also provides a range of syndicate rooms and event space on the mezzanine floor which will offer the local community an exciting venue for meetings, conferences, parties, learning and other social events.

The artists impression of this space below shows the event space as a “dining “ area although it can be configured to meet our client’s needs.

This area and the meeting rooms is available for hire  Please contact our Events Manager for further details at events@dehavillandmuseum.co.uk


The de Havilland Aircraft Museum is an independent museum that is not funded by either National or local government.

We depend on the generosity of its friends and supporters to help us complete the “Museum of the 21st Century  project and to continue our work in preserving the de Havilland Heritage, we hope you will consider making a donation..You can support the Hangar fund by clicking here.

Thank you
