Situated alongside RNAS Yeovilton, the Fleet Air Arm Museum will thrill the whole family. Get up close and personal with Europe's largest collection of Naval aircraft and see the first British Concorde.
A day at the Fleet Air Arm Museum is guaranteed to thrill the whole family. You'll be up close and personal among Europe's largest collection of Naval aircraft. Plus step on board the first British Concorde and see the cockpit.
The museum takes you to the heart of the action within the amazing Aircraft Carrier Experience. The sonic and visual assault on the senses is breathtaking. You'll ‘fly' by helicopter to the replica flight deck of the HMS Ark Royal. Among the aircraft on deck are two enormous projection screens showing a Phantom and Buccaneer taking off and landing around you.
You'll witness a dramatic air sea rescue when a Buccaneer is lost over the side of the Ark Royal into the sea. You will even see a nuclear bomb.
Outside is a children's playground, a restaurant, shop, free parking and excellent disabled access.
More than a museum, The Fleet Air Arm Museum is an exciting experience revealing the history of Naval aviation. Situated alongside Europe's busiest military air station. You may even see military aircraft going through their training procedures.
Visit The Fleet Air Arm Museum. The thrill is being there.
There are military style museums dotted all over the South of England. Some are small hidden gem museums that specialise in a certain field like helicopters or other aircraft, then there are others like the Fleet Air Arm Museum here in Yeovilton, that are that huge you could fit five of the smaller museums within it. When I visited for the first time I was astounded by not only how big this museum was, but also how much there was to see here. Concorde, Aircraft Carriers, helicopters just to name but a few of the many things you can expect to find at the Fleet Air Arm Museum. Just because there is mainly aircraft within this museum, it has nothing whatsoever to do with the RAF. The Royal Navy operate this museum and their collections are many, far to many for me to list within just a small amount of words.
