Our revised opening times for the time being are 10am-4pm (last admission at 3pm).  

The last admission time to look round the museum is 60 minutes before the closing time; subject to the number of visitors present on site, the locking up of the main display buildings will commence 30 minutes before the closing time

The museum café will close 30 minutes before closing time, with the last admissions into that facility being 45 minutes before closing time.

The museum shop will close at the same time as the museum, with last admissions for shoppers into the shop being 20 minutes before closing time.

The museum’s diverse collection of aircraft and cockpit sections is displayed on approximately 16 acres of the former site of RAF Winthorpe – part of which is also now the Winthorpe Showground. Nearly two thirds of the aircraft collection is now displayed inside two purpose built hangars to help protect the exhibits and visitors from any bad weather.
