Society of Friends of the Fleet Air Arm Museum

The Society of Friends of the Fleet Air Arm Museum (SoFFAAM) was formed in 1979.  Its object is the education of the public by promotion, support, assistance and improvement of the Museum through the activities of a group of Members. It aims to achieve this object by a lively programme of events, including talks and excursions. SoFFAAM is a Registered Charity, No. 280725.


COVID19 - Re-Joining Information: -

To mitigate capacity and safety onsite during the COVID19 pandemic, the Museum has moved to a position of advance booking for all visitors. We regret that we are not in a position to process walk up sales or walk-up re-admittance until further notice. Visitors must select a date and arrival time in advance of their visit.

The Museum has developed a web portal specifically for SOFFAAM members. This portal allows members to book a zero value ticket on the Museum website, reserve a slot on their chosen date/time and provide track and trace information.

Please remember to book two slots/tickets for joint member visitation and upto five slots/tickets for family visitation. Members will receive joining instructions and will need to bring this information, and their membership cards to the Museum upon visiting.

The portal can be accessed via the link below: -


The Museum WILL NOT ALLOW WALK-UP ENTRY on production of a membership card – all visitation must be pre-booked via the ticketing portal.


Members can bring guests with them, these tickets should be purchased separately at the link below: -


Payments for guest admission cannot be processed on the day. Our online booking portal will now also allow SOFFAAM members to add a discount of 30% for upto 4 accompanying guests. Remember – SOFFAAM members should use the code DEFNMRN01 to benefit from this discount.
