Get on board Concorde to discover what transatlantic flight was like for its passengers and crew and learn more about its supersonic legacy.

See behind the scenes in our Conservation Hangar (opening times for this hangar will be available at the Museum on the day).

Have a go on more than 25 hands-on interactives in our family-friendly Fantastic Flight gallery then learn about the history of East Fortune Airfield and hear the personal stories of the people who worked there in our Fortunes of War gallery.
