News & Events
End of Year
From 1st November, our daily closing time will revert to 4.30 pm. As is the norm, the Museum will be closed from 1st December to 31st January 2011 inclusive in order to facilitate redecoration and the provision of new exhibits. The new season will begin at 10.00 am on 1st February 2012.
Several new exhibits have been introduced during the past year. The Ferret project reached completion, our new Lightning simulator was commissioned with a full complement of qualified flying instructors in post and a very popular combat simulator introduced for budding fighter pilots. Our visitor numbers have held up extremely well during the year and are expected to outturn close to the all time record achieved in 2010.
Since our regular website features will, as usual, be suspended during the Museum’s close down period, this will be the final “Tangmere News” for 2011. We therefore take an early opportunity to thank our readers for their support during the year and wish all a very Merry Christmas and prosperous New Year.
