Fleet Air Arm Museum
Fleet Air Arm Museum, RNAS Yeovilton, Ilchester, Somerset, BA22 8HT, Tel: 01935 840565, SAT NAV REF: BA22 8HW
As much an 'attraction' as it is a 'museum', the Fleet Air Arm Museum is where Museum meets theatre. 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 strike fighter and a Buccaneer fighter-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 visit the cockpit.
Outside, there is a 'Mini Marines' adventure playground, a licensed restaurant and a shop, ample free parking and excellent disabled access. The Museum is located alongside Europe's busiest military air station RNAS Yeovilton. All images © Fleet Air Arm Museum.
