A successful Summer Season for the Museum
Looking back over the last few months we had…
A busy summer with three open events for modellers and aviation enthusiasts attracted over 800 visitors
Over 20 car club rallies; several weeks saw more than one
Growing use of the mezzanine area for receptions, conferences and meetings; the granting of an alcohol licence will add to its attraction
The updating of our cafeteria with a wider range of sandwiches and hot snacks

I liked the Horsa Glider.
We had a lovely day out. We really enjoyed all of the brilliant exhibits!
Very relaxed atmosphere and great quality of information.
Really enjoyed my first visit to this museum. Having spent the morning at the RAF museum in Hendon, I noticed that it was only a 15 minute drive to pop over to the De Havilland Aircraft museum so paying a visit was a no brainer. Very interesting exhibits, many of which have cockpit viewings on offer at no extra charge. This particular museum is home to my favourite jetliner, the Comet of which they have 4 on show! 1 being an original mark 1 full length fuselage (minus its wings) 2 are forward fuselage sections which are displayed outside and the final is the empty shell of another forward fuselage section which has been farmed for parts to help with the refurbishment of the Comet 1. Many other interesting aircraft, engines and weapons on display and a very well stocked shop and cafe, ample free parking and accessible toilets. The best part of my visit was meeting some of the lovely stewards who look after the museum. I had several very informative conversations and learnt a few things I didn’t know before. Great bunch a guys and a museum that I will definitely be visiting again and would highly recommend to others.Hidden Gem!
You can see the aircraft being restored and interesting exhibits.
The guide in Hangar E was very informative and helpful.
It’s great to have largely unrestricted access throughout the museum and exhibits.
I loved being able to get really close to the exhibits.
There are lots of curators around who are only too pleased to give information on the history of the various exhibits. Well worth the entrance fee!
Touching the last remaining part of a Sea Hornet was very special
