MANX AVIATION AND MILITARY MUSEUM

Attraction in Isle of Man

MANX AVIATION AND MILITARY MUSEUM

By focusing on people rather than events the museum has an unusually intimate and often moving atmosphere. You can discover the amazing story of civil and military aviation in the Isle of Man and also find out about the Island and its people both at home and in the armed forces in wartime. Often likened to Dr
Who’s “Tardis”, and packed full of exhibits ranging from a single button to a full-size aeroplane, the museum has something of interest for everybody. A wide range of exhibits relating to the military and aviation history of the Isle of Man and people who served in the Armed Forces both on and off island. Exhibits include a Bandeirante aircraft, the story of the Manx Regiment, the stories and relics of aircraft accidents, a rare self-propelled Bofors gun, and rare and unique items recovered from the Irish Sea. There is also a Memorial Garden including a Memorial to Canadian Servicemen killed on the island during WW II.
