About de Havilland Aircraft Museum

The oldest aviation museum in the UK dedicated to the preservation and display of de Havilland Aircraft.

The de Havilland company created world beating aeronautical innovations including many iconic aircraft such as the de Havilland Mosquito - "The Wooden Wonder", the Comet - the world's first jet airliner, the Tiger Moth - the "backbone "of the RAF's training aircraft in WWII and the Airspeed Horsa Glider - used extensively by our airborne troops in 1944 during D-Day, Arnhem and the Rhine crossing.

This is a "working museum" where they actively restore de Havilland Aircraft so you are likely to see volunteers at work, who are always willing to answer your questions.
