Fleet Air Arm Museum devotes itself to the history of British naval aviation. The museum displays an extensive collection of military and civilian aircraft, engines, model aircraft, and paintings and drawings of aircraft. Located on the Yeovilton airfield, the museum simulates the experience of being on an aircraft carrier, and you can watch military aircraft take off and land. The site holds four large halls featuring numerous planes, from those of the early days of aeronautical experimentation to World War II fighter planes, including a kamikaze exhibit. Don't miss the museum's highlight--the Concorde 002 located in hall four.

A great museum if you are interested in navy aircraft. Lot of thought was put into the displays. There is a simulation of the helicopter was a great experience. It was excellent having a chance to go inside Concorde! If you’re in the area you definitely need to consider a visit! Cafe on site serves hot/cold meals and drinks. Play area available for younger children to have outdoor fun.
I always said one day I would revisit this Museum and finally I have, about 40 years after my first visit! Took my Daughter and her partner and we had a great time. Really interesting and fun. Starting to show it's age, but even so well worth a day out. Loved Concorde, and the Aircraft carrier experience too. Very friendly staff, well worth it.
