The Fleet Air Arm Museum in Yeovilton will change your perception of aircraft museums. The Museum’s award winning ‘Aircraft Carrier Experience’ is where museum meets theatre. You will be ‘transported’ by helicopter to the replica flight deck of the aircraft carrier HMS Ark Royal.
On board the Ark Royal you will see fighter aircraft and two enormous projection screens showing a Phantom strike fighter and a Buccaneer fighter-bomber.
You will see the Royal Navy in action and experience the thrills and sounds of a working flight deck and feel the wind in your hair. You will even see a nuclear bomb which makes this a truly unforgettable attraction. Inside HMS Ark Royal is a series of faithfully reconstructed cabins and operational areas.
The museum has the largest collection of naval aircraft anywhere in Europe and the first British-built Concorde which you can board and visit the cockpit.
Outside, there is a children’s adventure playground, a licensed restaurant and a shop, ample free parking and excellent disabled access.
The museum is located alongside Europe’s busiest military air station, RNAS Yeovilton in Somerset, situated on the B3151, just off the A303 and A37, 8.5 miles north-west of Sherborne. It is accessible from the M5 motorway, junction 25 at Taunton.
