2009 – Another Successful Year

With the arrival of November the Museum enters its last month of opening for 2009. The reversion to GMT in late October, when the clocks went back by one hour, means that daylight ends earlier in the evening and our closing time is adjusted to 4.30 pm for the rest of the month, with last entries now at 3.30pm.

Much has been achieved in 2009 and visitor feedback in the form of letters, Emails, comments to staff and Visitor’s Book comments tell us that both first time visitors and returning visitors (of whom we get many) continue to find the aircraft, exhibits and artefacts enduringly fascinating.

Many new exhibits, touch-screen displays and presentations have been added in 2009 with others upgraded and updated. The website has continued to grow in popularity with monthly hits now around the 12,000 mark and many complimentary comments received. As ever we welcome constructive comments on this or any other part of the Museum’s presentation and will continue to strive towards further improvement at all time. If you have any comments please let us know by Emailing us at info@tangmere-museum.org.uk.

Despite the current economic pressures visitor numbers in 2009 have held up very well and by late October were less than 1% behind the numbers at the same point in 2008 – itself the third successive record year in the Museum’s history.

As always the Museum will be closed for refit and refurbishment for the months of December and January and will re-open again at 10am on February 1st 2010. Ever-rising costs mean that we have had to increase entry prices for the 2010 season and the new prices, applicable from February 1st 2010 will be:

Adults – £7.50
Over 60s – £6.00
Children, 5 to 16 years – £2.00 (under 5s are free)
Family ticket, two adults plus two children – £17.00
