Fleet Air Arm Museum online: information and bookings

The Fleet Air Arm Museum will change your perception of aircraft Museums.

The Museum has the largest collection of Naval aircraft anywhere in Europe together with the first British built Concorde which you can go on-board and visit the cockpit. The Museum's award winning Aircraft Carrier Experience is where the Museum meets theatre. You'll be 'transported' by helicopter to the replica flight deck of the aircraft carrier HMS ARK ROYAL. On board the Ark Royal you'll see fighter aircraft and two enormous projection screens showing a Phantom strike fighter and a Buccaneer fighter-bomber.

Outside, there is a children's adventure playground, a licensed restaurant and a shop, ample free parking and excellent disabled access.
