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.

The Museum is now open with lots of February Half Term Fun

These Activities are available all week……………………………………..

Tuesday 18th  to Sunday 23rd February:

  • Find the WINNING GOLDEN AEROPLANE and WIN an Annual Family Season Ticket*
  • Explore our exhibits in a brand new way
  • Take our Quizzical Quiz as you move around the hangars
  • Have fun dressing up and playing games
  • Make and take home your own wooden bi-plane

As well as all this, the Aeroshop Cafe will be brimming with delicious, locally sourced (where possible) refreshments and hot drinks to keep you going throughout your visit. We have fully accessible hangars and the most wonderfully knowledgeable volunteer Stewards who will be on hand to answer any of your questions.

*We will have one Annual Family Season Ticket to give away each open day of half-term. Once you have completed the Quizzical Quiz, you will be invited to have a go at finding the golden winning aeroplane. There is no cash or prize alternative

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
