Bournemouth Aviation Museum

Our museum is a truly hands-on experience with many interactive exhibits, with most of our aircraft cockpits available for you to sit inside. From the famous English Electric Lightning to the mighty Westland Wessex Helicopter - all for you to view up close. Suitable for families, children and young people.

After your visit see our shop for exciting gift ideas for anyone interested in aviation. You can even visit the shop without entering the museum, just in case you fancy browsing the aviation memorabilia.
