FAST covers a whole load of aviation history - including satellites, as well as the usual aeroplanes and jets. There are plenty of component displays which are really interesting and even artistic. Free (but donations well worth giving) - so very good value for money.

Visted with my Dad and thoroughly enjoyed the time spent here - about two hours of history in a compact area so safe for children to wonder around and lots for them to see and buttons to press for interaction. The Cody plane was brilliant!! The old boys there couldn't wait to share their knowledge and experiences of Farnborough.

FAST MUSEUM Is part of my life here in Farnborough as I am a plane spotter not a geek as we get called. Museum contains relics od Farnborough RAE Maps models thousands of items.
Outside there are Aircraft that used to fly at Farnborough.
There is a good Shop and café . excellent parking .
Open on weekends 10am to 4pm and all free , you can join FAST and even volunteer to
help run the place all very friendly.

Understated venue. A must visit. Lots to be learnt here about the technology and aviation history. It's free entry so definitely worth an hour or two of your day..

Spent a fabulous couple of hours here. Great range of exhibits. Highly knowledgeable staff. They also explained things simply & in such a friendly way so that non-experts easily understood. Although it was raining they opened several of the "outside" exhibits so that our children could climb inside & pretend they were pilots.An excellent, informative way to spend a morning.
