What we offer on a school trip
The de Havilland Aircraft Museum’s mission preserves the de Havilland Heritage to ensure that current and future generations of all ages will learn of de Havilland’s contribution to British Aviation technology in the 20th century.
The de Havilland company created world beating aeronautical innovations including many iconic aircrafts 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.
We are a “working museum” where we actively restore de Havilland Aircraft so you are likely to see our volunteers at work, who are always willing to answer your questions.
The de Havilland Aircraft Museum is mostly staffed by unpaid volunteers who perform a wide range of tasks according to their skills.
Visitors can get close up and into many of our aircrafts. We run several activates which appeal to our younger visitors including guided tours hosted by our curator.
