A comprehensive 'guide book' is available from the museum shop.

We are located on part of the former World War Two airfield of Winthorpe in eastern Nottinghamshire close to the border with Lincolnshire. Very little remains of the original wartime buildings and what remains of the original runways are no longer fit for use.

3D site layout mapThis website has been designed to give a taste of what the museum has to offer. Whilst it does not fully cover all of our exhibits and displays we nevertheless hope it will encourage you to pay a real visit to one of the UK's largest volunteer managed aviation museums. Our diverse collection of aircraft and cockpit sections covers the history of aviation; the aircraft on display include 13 National Benchmark aircraft; 34 Significant aircraft and 21 Noteworthy aircraft as listed in the National Aviation Heritage Register. Nearly two thirds of the exhibits are now displayed inside.

In addition to the aircraft the museum displays a diverse display of aviation artefacts and a collection of more than thirty aero engines.

Each year the museum organises and hosts a diverse range of Special Event Days, details of which are regularly updated here on the website. We urge you check out the different pages that detail everything from our list of aircraft and cockpit through the excellent Museum Shop, which has been described by our regular shoppers as “the best specialist aviation outlet in the Midlands”.

When you visit we hope that you will find time to pause for a break in our Café. You can choose from a selection of snacks, sandwiches and hot or cold drinks. Why not try our Toasties described by some as being “legendary”? All are reasonably priced and prepared fresh to order. The Café can cater for parties – please book in advance.

We hope to see you soon.
