Getting around the museum

We want everyone who comes to our museums to enjoy their time with us and make the most of their visit.

  • The hangars have ramped access.
  • Due to the historic nature of our collection some of the aircraft, Concorde, Bac 1-11, Comet, and Boeing 707 can only be boarded by using stairs.
  • The site is wheelchair accessible and wheelchairs can be borrowed free of charge. 
  • Adapted toilets are available.
  • Guide dogs, hearing dogs and other recognised assistance dogs are welcome in museum buildings and on the outdoor site.
  • The Airfield Explorer is currently out of service. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Our full access guide can be found on the AccessAble website.
