The museum started out as an aviation enthusiasts group for members of the Eastern Counties Omnibus Company way back in 1977. The membership was later opened up to non employees and a temporary site was secured on the 17/35 runway at Norwich Airport. In early 1982, museum exhibits included Avro Anson (TX228), Westland Whirlwind (XP355), Sea V***n (XP919) and a Dassault Mystere IV (121). 1983 saw t

We had an amazing weekend and we hope you did too!

On behalf of the Museum, we’d like to thank every single Volunteer, Car Club, Re-Enactment Group and Visitor that braved the weather and supported Norwich’s Aviation Museum.

Fingers crossed we will see you all next year!

• Hand sanitisers are available throughout the museum for visitors use and we will continue to maintain high levels of sanitisation and cleaning

Aircraft guided tours may be available on the day of your visit. Tours cannot be pre-booked and because we cannot predict when tours might be possible, we cannot give any guarantees that any aircraft will be open. Please check before making a special journey.
Face masks/coverings will be required inside aircraft and sanitising of hands etc will be needed. If a tour of an aircraft is possible, capacities will be reduced from previous numbers and we ask that visitors understand the reasons for this. If an aircraft is open, operating with reduced capacity may mean that available tours are quickly booked and therefore we might not be able to accommodate all those wishing for a tour. When available, guided tours cost £2.50 per person, per aircraft type.

We are committed to make every effort to provide a safe environment for our visitors, staff and volunteers and we ask for your co-operation.

Wings & Wheel 2021 is going ahead!

In light of the government announcement earlier this week, delaying the full lifting of COVID restrictions by 4 weeks; the City of Norwich Aviation Museum would like to confirm that it’s Wings & Wheels Event, to be held on the 3rd and 4th July 2021 will be GOING AHEAD.

However, as some restrictions are to remain in place, the museum will be operating as a ‘COVID Safe Venue’ and therefore various measures will need to be adhered to.

• NHS Track and Trace in operation (QR Code or details taken on the day)
• Entry to the site via outside gate
• Exit from the site via gift shop
• Masks must be worn inside buildings
• Number of people inside buildings will be limited (controlled by members of staff on the door).
• One way system throughout main building
• All doors and windows open to allow adequate ventilation
• Regular cleaning of ‘touch surfaces’ and placement of hand sanitiser throughout
• Limited outside only seating available
• Outdoor Hot food Van & Takeaway Tea & Coffee served from the Canteen

With regards to aircraft tours, the museum has decided to restrict tours to the following aircraft; Nimrod, 146/RJ, Lightning & Jaguar Cockpits. Although card payment is available for entry/canteen facilities, we would prefer cash donations to be placed inside the donation boxes, near to the open aircraft.

Sadly all ‘Live Tours’, Vulcan, Hunter, F27 and Herald cockpits will no longer be available.

Nimrod and RJ85 tours - per aircraft - £2.50 adults, £1.50 children. Must be booked on entry to the museum - limited spaces and times available.

The tours themselves will be conducted by one tour guide with masks being worn throughout. Social distancing will remain in place between your group and our guides. Hand sanitiser will be provided before entering any aircraft. Before each tour a member of staff will make sure all touch surfaces are wiped down. All windows and doors will be opened to allow as much airflow as possible throughout the airframe. Inside tours will be a maximum of 15 minutes with a further 15 minutes on the outdoor aspects.

This year, we've got an amazing line-up of military vehicles, vintage cars, motorcycles and living history groups. The newly built tea room will be serving hot and cold drinks to takeaway along with live entertainment to keep all ages entertained! We are confident you will enjoy your visit and see what your local aviation museum has to offer, regardless of what restrictions remain in place!
We do hope you still join us on the 3rd / 4th July… we could really do with your support in what is still a very trying time for us all.

We are please to announce that the City of Norwich Aviation Museum has successfully applied for a grant under the Visitor Economy Grant Scheme.

The grant was applied for to help the museum to acquire some of the items required in the new tea room facility, which is nearing completion. The grant, for a maximum of £3000, was applied for in March and the museum was advised in April that it had been successful in its application. New equipment has now been delivered including a new ice cream freezer and a chiller cabinet for the storage of sandwiches cakes and drinks etc. In addition, the museum is looking to provide a meeting place for local clubs/societies which may wish to have regular meetings in the facility and to this end we have also, under the grant, acquired a projector which will be fitted permanently in the facility along with a large screen.

The City of Norwich Aviation Museum is grateful to Suffolk County Council, New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership for Norfolk and Suffolk and the European Development Fund for its support in the provision of this grant.

Wow!

We've been absolutely overwhelmed with the interest in our Wings & Wheels 2021 event on the 3rd & 4th July... so much so that we're having to pause vehicle admissions for Sunday 4th!

If you've already registered an interest and been contacted by a member of museum staff about the Sunday then please don't worry.

Saturday's looking great too but filling up fast!

Remember to get in touch with us if you're interested in displaying your classic car or are part of a club!
