Fleet Air  Arm

The Fleet Air Arm Museum

The Fleet Air Arm Museum is guaranteed to change your perception of aircraft museums

The Museum’s award winning Aircraft Carrier Experience is where Museum meets theatre. You’ll be ‘transported’ by helicopter to the replica flight deck of the aircraft carrier HMS ARK ROYAL.

On board the Ark Royal you‘ll see ten genuine aircraft and two enormous projection screens showing a Phantom strike fighter and a Buccaneer fighter-bomber. You will be in the heart of the action as powerful jet fighters take off and land around you.

You’ll see the Royal Navy in action and experience the thrills and sounds of a working flight deck, and feel the wind in your hair. You will even see a nuclear bomb which makes this a truly unforgettable attraction.

Inside the Ark Royal is a series of faithfully reconstructed cabins and operational areas from the Bridge to the ‘Goofers Deck’, which looks down onto the flight deck below.

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 the Museum there is a children’s adventure playground, a licensed restaurant and a shop, ample free parking and excellent disabled access.

The Museum is situated alongside RNAS Yeovilton - Europe’s busiest military air station and dependent upon operational demands, you may see fighter aircraft and helicopters going through their rigorous training procedures.
