Aviation Museum in Norfolk

Are you an aviation enthusiast looking for a great day out? The Norfolk and Suffolk Aviation Museum is the right place for you and deserves a place in your stack. With buildings for RAF Bomber Command, RAF Coastal Command & Air-Sea Rescue, Royal Observer Corps, and 446th Bomb Group USAAF all in close proximity to one another, you will have lots to see.

Is there a good aviation museum in Norfolk?

The Norfolk and Suffolk Aviation Museum is a free day out and only asks that you make an optional donation of your choosing as anything helps to keep the museum in action!

Providing you with a fully immersive experience there are some “hands-on” activities in the hangars for children, and a small sit-in fun aircraft and boat outdoors. When members are present in the Link Trainer Room it might be possible to have a “flight” in a WWII simulator for a donation. Along with all the sights to see there is also a café done in the style of a 1940s NAFFI which makes for a more interesting dining experience. Dogs are also welcome to the museum provided your furry friend is kept on a leash.

  • Opening times are from 10.30 am till 5 pm depending on the day
  • Admission is an optional donation based
  • Children under 8 years old go free
  • Comprehensive list of what you will see in the museum on the website!
  • Less than 6 miles away from Norwich City Centre
  • Free parking
