de Havilland Aircraft Museum

The de Havilland Aircraft Museum is the oldest aviation museum in the UK dedicated to the preservation and display of de Havilland Aircraft. The de Havilland Aircraft Company played an important role in the history of aircraft development in 20th century Britain creating world beating aeronautical innovations including many iconic aircraft such as the de Havilland Mosquito – “The Wooden Wonder”, the Comet – the world’s first jet airliner, the Tiger Moth – the “backbone “of the RAF’s training aircraft in WWII and the Airspeed Horsa Glider – used extensively by our airborne troops in 1944 during D-Day, Arnhem and the Rhine crossing. There are some transport related items at the Museum.

The Museum welcomes visits from Car Clubs. It is a “working museum” where they actively restore de Havilland Aircraft so you are likely to see their volunteers at work, who are always willing to answer your questions.
