Return To Normal Museum Operations

July, 2021

From 19 July, in accordance with Government guidelines, the Museum will return to pre-Covid operating procedures. There will be no requirement for social distancing but inside the Museum building the wearing of face coverings is strongly recommended. Covid Secure arrangements, such as the one-way-system will be removed. The Museum’s cockpits and simulators will be available to our visitors from 19 July, except the Lightning cockpit simulator which will open at a later date.

From Saturday 24 July the Museum will open 7 days a week.

In view of the changes, admission costs will revert to pre-Covid prices i.e. adults £10, concessions £8, Children £4 and a family ticket £24.
The Museum is delighted to welcome back our visitors in these better circumstances and thank all those who have supported us by visiting during the Covid restriction periods over the last eighteen months.
