The National Museum of the Royal Navy comprises four Museums, reflecting the fact that the Royal Navy operates on the sea, under the sea, on the land and in the air.
Welcome to the Fleet Air Arm Museum - representing the flying arm of the Royal Navy. With four exhibition halls, over ninety aircraft and over 2 million records and 30 thousand artefacts the Museum is the world's second largest naval aviation Museum.
The Fleet Air Arm Museum will change your perception of aircraft Museums.
The Fleet Air Arm Museum offers a day out guaranteed to thrill the whole family. You’ll be up close and personal among Europe’s largest collection of Naval aircraft, plus you can step on board the first British Concorde and see the cockpit first hand.
The museum takes you to the heart of the action within the award winning Aircraft Carrier Experience. You’ll ‘fly’ by helicopter to the replica flight deck of the HMS Ark Royal. On board you’ll see ten aircraft and two enormous projection screens showing a Phantom Interceptor Fighter and Buccaneer Low Level Strike Bomber take off and land around you. The sonic and visual assault on the senses is breathtaking.
You’ll experience the drama of a working flight deck and feel the wind in your hair as you witness an air sea rescue when a Buccaneer is lost over the side of the Ark Royal into the sea. You will even see a nuclear bomb.
Outside is a children’s ‘Mini Marines’ adventure playground, a licensed restaurant, shop, ample free parking and excellent disabled access.
More than a museum, The Fleet Air Arm Museum is an exciting experience revealing the history of Naval aviation. Situated alongside Europe’s busiest military air station, you may even see military aircraft going through their training procedures.
Visit The Fleet Air Arm Museum. The thrill is being there.

The location of the Museum is at Royal Naval Air Station Yeovilton (also known as HMS Heron) in Somerset. With more flights in and out of RNAS Yeovilton than any other military air station in Europe you are likely to see aircraft going through their rigorous training procedures.
