Open Cockpits Day
A unique chance to climb aboard the Museum’s amazing collection of aircraft. Many of our aircraft are entirely complete, including cockpits and our visitors would love to see inside.
For the first time ever, we are arranging access to the cockpits of these aircraft for our visitors to enjoy first hand. We will have a range of our aircraft available for visitors to climb aboard and enjoy an explanation from our expert guides on the systems inside the cockpits and how the aircrew flew these amazing aircraft.
So if you’ve ever wanted to climb aboard the Nimrod and experience her unique aroma, or sit inside a jet cockpit on top of an ejector seat, then this is your chance.
The full list of aircraft we will make available will be posted here closer to the time, so stay tuned to find out more about this unique chance to climb aboard the Museum’s aircraft.
CocKpits Day is a Special Event, prices for admission are £15 Adult, £12 Concession, £7 Child & £40 Family (2 Adults & 3 Children)
And for those who simply enjoy being at the Museum in summertime, our friends at SMJ Falconry will be joining us with nature’s fighter pilots. Their remarkable birds of prey will be flying live in the grounds of the museum, as we experience the unique relationship they enjoy with these hunters.
