Fleet Air Arm Museum

RNAS Yeovilton, BA22 8HT


The Fleet Air Arm Musuem in Yeovilton Somerset is as much an ‘attraction’ as it is a ‘museum’, the Fleet Air Arm Museum, Somerset is where Museum meets theatre.

Fleet Air Arm Museum
You’ll ‘fly’ by helicopter to the replica flight deck of the aircraft carrier HMS ARK ROYAL where you‘ll see fighter aircraft and two enormous projection screens showing a Phantom interceptor fighter and a Buccaneer strike bomber.

You’ll experience the thrills and sounds of a flight deck, and feel the wind in your hair and will even see a nuclear bomb!

The Museum has the largest collection of Naval aircraft anywhere in Europe and the first British built Concorde which you can go on-board and view the cockpit.
