A day at the Fleet Air Arm Museum is guaranteed to thrill the whole family. You’ll be up close and personal among Europe’s largest collection of Naval aircraft. Plus step on board the first British Concorde, see the cockpit and marvel at this remarkable aircraft which flew faster than a bullet.

The museum takes you to the art of the action with the amazing Aircraft Carrier Experience. The sonic and visual assault on the senses is breathtaking. You’ll ‘fly’ by helicopter to the replica flight deck of HMS Ark Royal. Among the aircraft on deck are two enormous projection screens showing Phantom and Buccaneer taking off and landing around you.

You’ll witness a dramatic air sea rescue when a Buccaneer is lost over the side of the Ark Royal into the sea. You will even see a nuclear bomb.

Outside is a children’s playground, a restaurant, shop free parking and excellent disabled access.

More than a museum, The Fleet Air Arm Museum is an exciting experience revealing the history of Naval aviation. Situated alongside Europe’s busiest military air station, you may even see military aircraft going through their training procedures. [ - Visit Somerset]
