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 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 new hangar and other major improvements have delivered a new and exciting visitor experience. With most of our collection now undercover and protected from the weather, you can comfortably enjoy our exhibits, new interpretation material, interactive displays and as we are a working museum, have a chat with our knowledgeable volunteers.
The health and well being of our visitors, volunteers and staff is our highest priority. In line with the latest advice from Public Health England, the de Havilland Aircraft Museum will be closed temporarily from 5.00 pm on 18 March until at least 1 May 2020.
Like many other independent small charities we depend on the generosity of its friends and supporters to help us to continue our work in preserving the de Havilland Heritage. As we are now closed we hope you will consider making a donation. You can make a donation by clicking here.
