Overview

Airworld Aviation Museum offers the opportunity to get close up to some historic aircraft. Set on an active airfield, the museum houses iconic machines such as the Hawker Hunter, D.H. Vampire, along with the only T2 BAe Harrier remaining worldwide. Unusually, visitors may enter the cockpits of some of the aircraft and find out what it is like to sit in the narrow confines of a jet fighter aircraft. Please see our website for latest additions to the collection. Part of the museum is devoted to the creation of the RAF Mountain Rescue Service, started here at RAF Llandwrog in 1942, whilst other sections describe the wartime airfields of North Wales. The gift shop sells model kits, remote control helicopters, quadcopters (drones), rockets and souvenirs. Free car parking on site, well behaved dogs welcome. The airport has a cafe run by the Wales Air Ambulance staff.

Really loved this little air field with lots of activity. The cafe was cosy with lots of cake and the museum was great. Felt like a kid all over again. The highlight was the coastguard helicopter coming in from the sea

What an interesting place. It is rather rough and ready, but this adds to the experience, as everything looks genuine and used. Being able to touch and handle many of the exhibits, and to actually enter the cockpits of the aircraft was a real treat...More

Not a 'glossy' attraction but lots to see and unusually, you can get up close and personal with most of the exhibits. Definitely an attraction to visit and support with an emphasis on RAF activity in North Wales.

The flight was good and there were lots of things to shoot. I was primarily wanting to shoot the Skerries, which I was able to do. It is expensive, but well worth the cost if you want aerial shots

Loads of aviation stuff to see and it's an interesting museum. Great tribute to the Mountain Rescue Service too. Well worth the visit and you can even sit in some cockpits.....

I have visited this museum several times over many years. It was, despite sterling efforts from what seemed like the sole curator, desperately in need of some love and attention but still worth visiting. What a pleasant surprise on our annual rainy day visit last...More
