City Of Norwich Aviation Museum

City Of Norwich Aviation Museum The City Of Norwich Aviation Museum is predominantly a volunteer run organisation. Without their contribution it would not survive. Members are involved in the numerous tasks necessary to manage and operate the museum.

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 the arrival of our Vulcan bomber which flew in to the airport after its retirement from service. By 1985 the museum had moved to its present site and an air fair held to help raise funds to expand the museum. At this time the Anson had gone (having been damaged beyond economical repair during gales) but Vampire (XD373) had arrived. 1986 saw another air fair on 14th September that saw attendance figures break the 20,000 barrier and another arrival, T-33 (16718). Over the next few years, services were laid, the main exhibition hall erected and the arrival of more aircraft. Recently the museum has expanded its display areas, widened its public awareness campaign, and advertised itself globally through its website. The future holds many obstacles for the museum but with a dedicated group of volunteers we hope to carry on expanding and provide a more comprehensive view of aviation in the area.

Update - over the past year our opening hours and displays have been very restricted (now closed) but we have made progress with the new café and toilet facilities. We look forward to hopefully opening, at least partially, again in the spring and summer.

Happy New Year to all our followers, customers, volunteers & supporters!

Happy New Year to all our followers, customers, volunteers & supporters!

With 2020 nearing an end, we’d like to thank those Visitors, Volunteers, Donators & Businesses who supported the museum through what has been an extremely difficult year.

We hope 2021 will be a more exciting and productive year for us - bringing to an end the difficulties COVID-19 has placed on so many charitable organisations like us.

With regards to the RJ...

We’d love for you to make contact with us - sharing photographs, stories & videos of your experience with our RJ, BAE, The 146/RJ Development or the Airlines which made her t he ‘Queen of the Skies’.

Although more details will be published later; The plan moving forward is to create an exhibition space in the rear of the cabin to display memorabilia, photographs, stories etc.

Along with this the aircraft systems will be kept live - becoming a unique classroom and educational asset to the museum, displaying the ‘Whisper Jet’ in all her glory and inspiring future engineers and aviators alike.

The aim is to make the interior of the aircraft ready for the museums annual ‘Wings & Wheels’ event on the 3rd & 4th July 2021.

We will post regular updates via this page so please remember to like, share & comment!

Once restrictions are lifted, there will be plenty to do at the museum. So if you have some spare time on your hands and would like to get involved then contact us or check out the museums website for more details!

In the mean time, Stay Safe & Happy New Year from everyone at the City of Norwich Aviation Museum and those caring for the RJ!

***COVID-19 Situation Update***

It is with deep regret that we have decided to temporarily close the City of Norwich Aviation Museum with immediate effect, until further notice.
