Fleet Air Arm Museum

Discover Europe's largest collection of Royal Navy aircraft at Fleet Air Arm Museum - an award winning naval aviation museum located in Yeovilton, Illchester. The all-weather attraction is the perfect place for all the family with immersive experiences, outdoor play area and history on legendary Royal Navy aircraft.

Over 102 airframes and counting

Since opening in 1964, Fleet Air Arm Museum has grown its collection of Royal Navy aircraft to 102 with more being added every year. The museum features large halls containing dozens of aircraft from all eras of naval aviation, from the first manned kites towed behind naval vessels, to helium filled airships, seaplanes and Second World War aircraft. The eclectic mix of aircraft makes Fleet Air Arm Museum's collection the largest in Europe. From hall 1 and the development of Royal Navy air power and technology as a formidable air power to the epic Concorde 002 in hall 4 as you learn about the theory of flight. 

Leading the edge in modern aircraft design 

An exceptional and highly decorate Concorde 002 is the centre piece of our collection in hall 4, as the 'leading edge' exhibition showcases truly exceptional aircraft and developments in design and technology. The British aircraft industry has always been at the forefront of these world leading fields with the Fairey Delta Two, the delta winged HP115 and the last surviving Westland Wyvern representing the ingenuity behind them. 

Climb onboard our HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier

A brand new addition to Fleet Air Arm Museum sees the introduction of an outdoor adventure playground which is perfect for all the family as you climb onboard the UK's largest aircraft carrier. Swing, slide and climb your way onboard our 60ft accessible play area with wheelchair friendly equipment. The play area seeks to inspire young and old alike who want to pretend to pilot a F-35 jet or helicopter. 


We are temporarily not accepting walk up ticket purchases, so make sure you buy your ticket and book your time slot in advance!
