About
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. 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 and souvenirs. Free car parking on site. The airport has a cafe run by the Wales Air Ambulance staff. With regret, we can no longer allow dogs into the museum.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Having last been here with my grandparents back in 1988 I yesterday ventured back with my wife and small children and our friend's family. We had the whole museum to ourselves and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The exhibits are impressive and plentiful.

All the family were entertained. Most of the planes are interactive in as much as you can get in the cockpits which is a great touch that you wouldn't get in most museums. Our children are 6 and 2 years old and they loved it due to the interactive nature of the exhibits. Great for kids and adults of all ages.

Can't wait to come back again.

I made a flying visit to Caernarfon in September and managed to find an hour to visit the Airworld Air Museum.

It was well worth it as there is an excellent variety of (largely) British aircraft on display, from an Air Cadet Glider to a two-seat Harrier, with some unusual post-war types - such as the Javelin and Sea Hawk as a Vampire and Hunter. There were also a couple fo helicopters.

The nicest thing about the museum is the access to the cockpits that they have managed. With most exhibits having 'open cockpits' so that you can see what the pilots had to deal with when flying these machines.

It is also located at the airfield (which has a very good cafe) and means that you can also see plenty of flying aircraft as well

Thank you for an excellent visit.

We visited the air museum with our six-year-old boy on a weekday.

This is a small museum, and I imagine it gets crowded at busy times, but there was only one other family there when we arrived so there was plenty of time to see everything. There is lots of history crammed into this small package.

Unlike most museums, you’re allowed (and encouraged) to sit in the aircraft. Our boy loved this, and even for us grown-ups it was a novelty!

Some of the exhibits are starting to look a little tired, but we could see that they are actively working on making improvements, so this was easily forgivable!

If you’re in the area, it’s well worth popping in for a visit.

Fantastic little museum, perfect for children because you are allowed to touch / handle / get in the exhibits, plus interesting facts and anecdotes in the displays. Highly recommended.

This is a relatively small museum located by a local airport.
Most of the planes on view are jets.However it does have a lot of information about airfields in the area.Worth the effort to get here

A stunning little museum, well worth the price of entry. Really interesting displays and full aircraft.

Absolute highlight is the ability to interact with all the exhibits, with a number of interactive exhibits, including a great display of bomber command. even being able to sit in the cockpits of certain aircraft!! exceeded expectations and worth at least 2 hours of your time.

Bloke that was on the front desk was lovely, with a good selection of items in the shop.

Stunning location right next to a beach and being able to watch the planes take off was really cool. My partner is a huge aviation geek and really enjoyed sitting in the planes inside the museum. Cool little gift shop as well.

A lovely aviation museum, tons of history of the local area during the war, and the coastguard also, can sit in some of the planes and can look in a lot also.

This is a small little place but crammed full of artifacts and exhibits.
Unlike a lot of museums, there's 3 cockpits available for getting in : de Haviland Vampire, Hawker Sea Hawk and Hawker Hunter.
Theres a good section dedicated to Bomber Command and the Dambusters.
Theres plenty to see if you want to take the time to look at all the displays and watch all the videos.
Beware that the website is slightly out of date on its pricing with a family ticket costing £20 compared to the £17.50 on the website.
However, this is still a really good value venue to kill a few hours, especially on a rainy day.

Went to the museum during what felt like a hurricane .We were told it might sound like it but the roof wouldn't lift off.Great range of exhibits and it was great that people could get in the cockpits of the planes if you would like to.Liked the flying flea never heard of the build your own plane kit before .Unfortunate that the cafe is closed .Plenty of parking and lovely views of the beaches on drive up to the museum.Good place o spend a few hours
