The Museum is divided into 4 halls.They deal with the history of the service from its inception in the early 20th century till the present day.Lots of information and lots of exhibits.That was very interesting.However I wasn't that keen on the Carrier "tour".Having visited the one in New York harbour,this comes off as a second rate theme park attraction.Particularly at...

We visited with kids aged ranged between 1-11. The museum was quiet so it was nice to wander at your leisure. The tour of the air craft carrier and helicopter ride went down a storm with the kids and was very informative for the adults too. I would say it's a tad expensive but we got a great deal on...

Unfortunately our Saturday in Somerset in February was very wet! No matter! The Fleet Air Arm Museum provided us with a fantastic display of extremely interesting aircraft associated with the Royal Navy. You get up really close and personal to all the displays and the staff are both pleasant and knowledgeable in ample quantities! They even have Concorde 002 G-BSST... More

We visited this with our daughter , son in law and two grandchildren aged 2 & 4 . Little one was in a pushchair and we took the Oran access entrance where the staff were so welcoming and helpful. This is not a place for a toddler but the 4 year old loved it especially the interactive sections . Signage... More

Brilliant. Don't rush it, take it all in. Every aspect of Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm flying history to take in. Planes and helicopters you can touch, climb in, Concorde 002, Interactive exhibits, an aircraft carrier experience that, according to some who served on' Lusty', is pretty much spot on. Unless you are ex RN, you probably will not know... More

All day visit, lots for the children to do. 40 min aircraft carrier experience the best display I have seen in a museum, all the family loved it. Nice gift shop and cafe.

My wife and I plus two daughters and four young grandchildren visited this location during this weeks half term holiday when the heavens had opened. Buying the tickets for 2 adults plus three children on line before the visit was a great saving. My wife and I plus the fourth child entered by the disabled entrance as there are some... More
