Our exhibits range from the magnificent Avro Vulcan bomber through more than
30 other historic aircraft, both civil and military, aero engines and other
artefacts, to a wide range of memorabilia.
We're particularly proud of our collection of material relating to Sir Frank
Whittle, the Coventry-born engineer who designed the jet engine which made
modern high-speed aircraft and economical air travel possible. The Museum
houses a heritage centre dedicated to the memory of Sir Frank and his
marvellous inventive genius.
Opening Times and admission prices.
Season tickets enable you to make as many visits as you want in a single
year. Special rates are available for parties of 10 or more.
We have a well-stocked shop selling model kits, books, magazines, paintings,
prints etc. as well as refreshments - take a break during your tour, have a
bite to eat and continue at your leisure! Of course we have toilets,
including disabled facilities. Disabled access to the museum is generally
good, though the raised gallery and aircraft interiors are unfortunately not
accessible to wheelchair users. We have a car park in front of the museum
with free parking for up to 100 cars and plenty of room for coaches too.
The Museum is ideally suited to educational visits by school parties or
other organised groups; our Education Centre, guided tours and worksheet
packs are available by prior arrangement. These have been tailored to the
requirements of the National Curriculum.
