Airworld Aviation Museum
The Airworld Aviation museum is located on the seafront and is at the former RAF Station Llandwrog. If you want to hear about the unrevealed secrets from the aviation world and learn everything about planes, this is the place for you. It is superbly exciting and when visiting, you will come across plane models, fun educational displays, a screening room and even real planes. The Cinema room has a great 20 minutes show. Unique in many ways, can you believe that you also get to sit in the cockpit of an early post war jet fighter? You can even sit in a training craft and experience the real thing. For any souvenirs, the airport shop is a must. And if you want to live this experience to its fullest, you can book a 'pleasure flight' over Snowdonia and the Llyn Peninsula at the 'airport reception'. There is a great fancy café where you can sit back and relax while enjoying the view too. It is spectacular and you get to see the microlights, helicopters and planes, take off and land.*
For a fabulous day out for you and all the family, the Caernarfon Airworld Aviation Museum, has something for everyone. Formerly RAF Llandwrog, the site opened in 1941 as an RAF Bomber Command airfield, later to become the home of RAF Mountain Rescue Service. With the busy Caernarfon Airport close by, when you visit this awesome museum, you’re given the unique opportunity to get up close and personal, with a wonderful assortment of beautiful, majestic flying machines. On display you will see the Westland Whirlwind helicopter, the nose section of the Gloster Javelin, Hawker Sea Hawk and many many more. The museum opened in 1988, and is located near the breathtaking blue flag beach Dinas Dinlle, which is a ‘Site of Special Scientific Interest.’ A charming café serves a variety of delicious snacks, so you can have a bite whilst watching the busy airport going about it’s business.- Top 100 Review
