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.

Interesting exhibits

The museum is quite small but has some interesting exhibits, including cockpits that you can sit on. Went down well with my 10yr old.

Its not my intention to undermine the work of the volunteers who give their time to keep the museum going but this place could do with a bit of TLC! Plenty of memorabilia on display nicely displayed and the kids loved going inside the cockpits - there was plenty to look at for them. However there were some areas of... More

We went on recommendation of our son, and although live half an hour away, we've never been inside, although we knew of it. Run mainly by volunteers, this is an informative and interesting little museum where you are actively encouraged to climb inside the planes and other exhibits and twiddle all knobs and push all buttons. There is a historical... More

We thought we would support the museum, expecting photos and models etc, but were pleasantly surprised to find there were actual aircraft. Not usually my type of thing but it was very interesting and made you realise how brave our servicemen and offshore rescue personnel are. Definitely recommended!

We went here for a birthday treat, a flight over Anglesey by helicopter and what a treat is was. After the flight a visit to the museum - what a treat this was. The staff were really friendly (all volunteers I think) and what a surprise as you enter the main hall. So much of interest that takes a while... More

Visited with my 2 year old boy who loves planes. He had a great time climbing in and out of the exhibits. It's quite small but enough to entertain the younger ones for a couple of hours and some interesting history and artifacts for the adults to see. Right on the airfield as well so we spent a few minutes... More

Looking like a big shed or small warehouse, the museum is recognisable by the propeller on the front. Inside is a range of exhibits which are surprisingly interesting, and in some cases, such as the personal stories quite moving. Most interesting for kids of all ages is the opportunity to sit in the cockpit of a fighter jet or bomber... More

Enjoyed this venue and found the historic information interesting particularly the war stories very moving. A good day out and worth every penny . The shop /booking entrance needs attention though as it is disorgnaised and makes the whole venue appear unproffessional
