De Havilland Aircraft Museum

Admission Charge

The de Havilland Aircraft Museum, based at Salisbury Hall, is the oldest aviation museum in the UK dedicated to the preservation and display of de Havilland Aircraft supported by public donations. The de Havilland Aircraft Company played an important role in the history of aircraft development in 20th Century Britain. 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 and the Airspeed Horsa Glider.

The de Havilland Aircraft Museum is staffed entirely by unpaid volunteers who perform a wide range of tasks according to their skills. The Volunteer Crew are united in our mission to restore, preserve and display de Havilland Aircraft and artefacts. We are a “working” museum where the visiting public are encouraged to get up close to the aircraft and engage with our friendly volunteers.
