Details

The National Museum of the Royal Navy comprises four Museums, reflecting the fact that the Royal Navy operates on the sea, under the sea, on the land and in the air.

The Fleet Air Arm Museum represents the flying arm of the Royal Navy. With four exhibition halls, over ninety aircraft and over 2 million records and 30 thousand artefacts the Museum is the world's second largest naval aviation Museum.

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

The Fleet Air Arm Musum's new Fly Navy 100 exhibition dramatically presents 100 years of naval aviation from its first air ship 1909, to today's formidable air power from the sea.

The Museum has the first British built Concorde which you can go on-board and visit the cockpit. In addition, you will see the Museum's award winning Aircraft Carrier Experience.

Where the Museum meets theatre: You'll 'fly' 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 strike bomber. Once on board you can visit the ’Island’ control rooms and bridge and even see a nuclear bomb.

Royal Naval Air Station, Yeovilton, Yeovil, Somerset. BA22 8HT. Tel. 01935 840565
